Dr. Nork is a founder, serves as a member of the Executive Board, and provides consulting on many aspects of vision science.
Dr. Nork is an Associate Professor of Ophthalmology at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. He is fellowship trained in ophthalmic pathology, and his clinical specialties include diseases, surgery of the retina and vitreous, and clinical electrophysiology.
His research model incorporates electrophysiologic and histopathologic techniques to assess the effects of glaucoma on the outer retina (the photoreceptors) and possible neuroprotective mechanisms. In collaboration with the University of Wisconsin Department of Ophthalmology Fundus Photograph Reading Center, Dr. Nork grades retina photographs and optical coherence tomographs for toxicologic studies. He also provides surgical expertise on vitrectomy, subretinal injections and retinal laser photocoagulation for animal models of choroidal neovascularization.
