Stelios Evangelos Gragoudas Professorship in Ophthalmology

Dean Eliott, MD, associate director of the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary (MEEI) Retina Service, has been named the inaugural incumbent of the Stelios Evangelos Gragoudas Professorship in Ophthalmology at Harvard Medical School.

Made possible by the MEEI Board of Directors, the professorship honors Evan Gragoudas, MD, the Charles Edward Whitten Professor of Ophthalmology at HMS, a world authority on the diagnosis and management of intraocular tumors. Currently bearing the name of Gragoudas’ father, the professorship will be renamed in Evan’s honor upon his retirement from MEEI, in recognition of his years of exemplary service.

Eliott, the incumbent, is a leader in vitreoretinal surgery with a well-established research program focused on the development of novel approaches to combat retinal disease. He has been a principal investigator on several clinical trials centered on diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, retinal detachment, and surgery for complex retina-vitreous disorders.
