Biographical Info

J. Jason McAnany, PhD

Dr. McAnany is Associate Professor of Ophthalmology and Director of the Clinical Psychophysics and Electrophysiology Laboratory at the University of Illinois College of Medicine. Dr. McAnany joined the Department of Ophthalmology in September 2011 as a member of the research faculty. He is the principal investigator of a National Eye Institute (NEI) research grant, “Mechanisms of Early Functional Loss in Diabetic Eye Disease,” which aims to study early neural dysfunction of the retina in patients who have diabetes. He also has a multi-PI award from the NEI “Mechanisms of Vision Loss in X-Linked Juvenile Retinoschisis” to study retinal structure and function in patients who have XLRS, an inherited vitreoretinal degenerative disease. His research is focused on defining the relationship between visual dysfunction and underlying disease processes using noninvasive test procedures including psychophysical, electrophysiological, and pupillometric measures, with the goal of developing novel approaches for diagnosing and monitoring the progression of visual dysfunction.
