agues introduced Visudyne, which targets the abnormal choroidal blood vessels in neovascular AMD. Visudyne was the first medicinal treatment for AMD, and revolutionized the therapeutic strategies for this blinding disorder. Dr. Miller also helped identify vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) as the primary molecule responsible for the abnormal choroidal vessel growth in neovascular AMD. This discovery led to the anti-VEGF class of drugs, which are currently first-line treatments for neovascular AMD.

"Dr. Miller has pushed the frontiers of understanding to improve the lives of patients," said Jeffrey S. Flier, M.D., Dean of Harvard Medical School. "I am pleased that the American Academy of Ophthalmology has recognized Dr. Miller's leadership in translational research, which is central to the mission of Harvard Medical School."

Dr. Miller's achievements have also been commended by the leadership at Massachusetts Eye and Ear, the primary teaching affiliate of the Harvard Medical School Department of Ophthalmology. "This honor is a testament to Dr. Miller's ongoing and groundbreaking contributions to the advancement of treatments for potentially blinding retinal diseases and to the field of ophthalmology as a whole," said Wyc Grousbeck, Chairman of the Board. "We're grateful for her outstanding and innovative leadership of the Department of Ophthalmology at Mass. Eye and Ear."

Dr. Miller and her colleagues continue to study the mechanisms of vision loss and develop improved therapies for AMD. "Using a combination of genetic and functional studies, we will have a better understanding of how AMD develops," says Dr. Miller. "This will allow us to design more elegant treatments and achieve success in prevention and early intervention."

Dr. Miller has published more than 130 peer-reviewed papers, 50 book chapters and review articles, is co-editor of the third edition of Albert and Jakobiec's Principles and Practice of Ophthalmology,
