Vikas Chopra, MD, Awarded Warren Endowed Chair
Doheny Eye Institute is proud to announce that Vikas Chopra, MD, has been awarded the Charles Stewart Warren and Hildegard Warren Endowed Research Chair. This prestigious appointment is supported in perpetuity by the generous gift made to the Institute by Mrs. Warren in 1999.
“It is an honor to hold this position at Doheny,” says Dr. Chopra. “Being awarded the Warren Chair is a great affirmation of the important and promising work that my team and I are doing.”
Dr. Chopra specializes in medical and surgical management of glaucoma. He earned his medical degree from Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine and completed an ophthalmology residency and specialty training at the Kresge Eye Institute of Wayne State University School of Medicine. He joined the faculty of Doheny Eye Institute in 2005. He served as a co-investigator in a nationwide, multi-center, NIH-sponsored bio-engineering partnership, the Advanced Imaging for Glaucoma study, which sought to improve the detection and management of glaucoma. He is a principal investigator at the Doheny Image Reading Center where he and colleagues use high-speed, high-resolution imaging to characterize glaucoma.
“This position will ensure that Dr. Chopra’s critical glaucoma research will continue at Doheny,” says SriniVas Sadda, MD, President and Chief Scientific Officer of Doheny Eye Institute.
