Dr. Mahajan's bio
This content was provided by Dr. Mahajan "As a vitreoretinal surgeon and NIH funded scientist at Stanford University, Dr. Vinit Mahajan is focused on developing new surgical methods to improve the outcomes and safety of eye surgery including a Tano-scraper method for Macular Hole Closure and a Limbus based incisions for infant and pediatric vitrectomy. Dr. Mahajan's research breakthroughs point to personalized molecular therapies that have earned him multiple NIH grants. In 2016 he received the Fight for Sight Alumni Achievement Award for his research. He is developing new precision health approaches to treating eye disease using proteomic bio markers and bioinformatic pipelines for disease applications, Dr. Mahajan and his team performed the first CRISPR therapy for eye disease in human stem cells. Dr. Mahajan is also discovering the genes and proteins that cause eye inflammation and blindness. Dr. Mahajan's research team linked Calpain5, the first gene known to cause eye inflammation, to a rare eye disease that causes generations of blindness and mimics many types of eye disease. His work on Calpain5 was featured on the CBS News and People Magazine. His team's scientific discoveries have been published in over 100 peer reviewed articles in a variety of medical journals. Training scientists and retina fellows to tackle scientific challenges using cutting edge techniques is one of Dr. Mahajan's top priorities. He continues to co-author numerous clinical papers with his surgical fellows and assists his MD.,PhD. and PhD students in winning training grants. Many of his trainees have earned awards recognizing their scientific work. Dr. Mahajan earned his bachelor's degree in Molecular and Cell Biology at the University of California, Berkeley. He then entered the Medical Scientist Training Program at the University of California, Irvine. Upon completion, he joined the residency program at the Jules Stein Eye Institute at the University of California, Los Angeles. At UCLA he completed post docotoral laboratory research as an EyeSTAR Fellow. He next specialized in vitreoretinal diseases and surgery at the University of Iowa's Retina Fellowship Program and joined as faculty in 2008. He is currently a vitreoretinal surgeon, associate professor, and scientist at Stanford University. "
