Biographical Sketch 

Dr Do is currently an associateprofessor in the School. He received his Bachelor of Science in Optometry andPhD from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU). He worked as apostdoctoral fellow and then a research associate at the School of Medicine of Universityof Pennsylvania in the United States before returning to his alma mater as anassistant professor.

Dr Do’s research interests lie in theareas of aqueous humor dynamics and glaucoma pathophysiology. His researchhas  focused on cellular mechanismsresponsible for modulating the rate of aqueous humor secretion, outflowfacility and intraocular pressure (IOP). He has adopted an integrated approach,using both in vivo and in vitro animal models to investigate the regulation ofaqueous humor dynamics and its relationship to IOP. The outcome of thesestudies may have a direct translational biomedical significance for the developmentof novel anti-glaucoma agents.

Dr Do was a member of the OptometristsBoard in Hong Kong. Currently, he serves as a member of the SupplementaryMedical Professions Council.
