Dr. Cheryl Gregory-Evans PhD

(She, Her, Hers)



Department of Medical Genetics, Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences

Faculty of Medicine

Dr. Gregory-Evans completed her Ph.D. degree at the University of Strathclyde in Scotland, United Kingdom. Her area of specialization is in the mechanisms of ocular developmental biology and disease, animal models of ocular and brain diseases, while developing novel treatments for inherited eye diseases. Recently Dr. Gregory-Evans have been developing models of foveal hypoplasia, testing novel drugs for inherited eye diseases, identifying new disease genes causing amyotophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and nonsense suppression treatments for eye diseases. If she could collaborate with other researchers, Dr. Gregory-Evans would work with researchers who are experts in imaging. For example, she would use artificial intelligence to detect ocular changes in ALS patients.

Dr. Gregory-Evans is an avid athlete in Ironman triathlon races that involve 3.4km of swimming, 180km of cycling, and a 42.2km marathon.
