About me

Michel Michaelides is a Consultant Ophthalmologist at Moorfields Eye Hospital in the departments of Medical Retina, Inherited Eye Disease and Paediatric Ophthalmology; and is a Department of Health funded Professor of Ophthalmology at the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology. He is a recipient of a career development award from the Foundation Fighting Blindness (USA) – an award which is rarely given to non-US applicants; and has gained membership of the highly prestigious Macula Society in the USA.

He has undertaken a medical retina and genetics clinical fellowship at Moorfields Eye Hospital, and a combined ophthalmic genetics and paediatric ophthalmology clinical and research fellowship at the internationally renowned Casey Eye Institute, Oregon Health and Science University, Portland, Oregon, USA.

He undertook a period of dedicated research (2002-2004), with his doctoral thesis entitled: ‘Cone and Central Receptor Dystrophies – A Clinical and Molecular Genetic Investigation’.

His clinical and research interests include diabetic eye disease, age-related macular degeneration and inherited eye disease in adults and children; with over 90 peer-reviewed publications and 14 co-authored book chapters. He collaborates closely with Professors Robin Ali and James Bainbridge in the UK and Professors Joe Carroll and Richard Weleber in the USA, culminating in multiple publications and presentations relating to both acquired and inherited retinal disease and the development of new treatments. He is actively involved in retinal clinical trials investigating novel and established therapies, being a principal investigator in 6 on-going clinical trials.
