    Jennifer Rose-Nussbaumer, MD, is an Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology at University of California, San Francisco who specializes in cornea and external disease. After completing her undergraduate studies in France, she obtained her medical degree from the University of California San Francisco. She completed a transitional internship year at Legacy Emanual Hospital in Portland Oregon, followed by ophthalmology residency at the Casey Eye Institute, Oregon Health Sciences University. During her residency, she was awarded the Kenneth C. Swan Resident Research Award. She then spent an additional year of intensive fellowship training in corneal transplantation, external disease, uveitis and refractive surgery at the Francis I. Proctor Foundation at UCSF. During her fellowship she was awarded the William F. Hoyt Award for Outstanding Teaching. Dr. Rose-Nussbaumer is board certified and a member of the Cornea Society and the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO).

    After completing her fellowship she joined the faculty at UCSF. Her clinical practice focuses on corneal transplantation including lamellar keratoplasty, Boston Keratoprosthesis as well as cataract surgery. At the Proctor Foundation she is one of the attending physicians in the Wednesday Cornea Clinic. This clinic is reserved for patients with particularly complicated diagnostic or treatment questions related to their ocular surface disease. An important focus of this clinic is also teaching residents and fellows how to manage these diseases.

    In addition to her clinical work, Dr. Rose-Nussbaumer is an NIH-funded researcher whose research interests include corneal ulcer treatment as well as surgical randomized clinical trials. In collaboration with Tom Lietman, MD and the Francis I. Proctor Foundation she has worked on the Mycotic Ulcer Treatment Trial II in both India and Nepal to investigate the best treatment for fungal keratitis. She is the primary investigator at UCSF for two trials, conducted in collaboration with Aravind Eye Hospital in India, looking at the potential of collagen cross-linking to treat bacterial and fungal keratitis. She is also the primary investigator at UCSF for Descemet Endothelial Thickness Comparison Trial, a collaborative effort with Winston Chamberlain, MD at Oregon Health Sciences University. This trial compares outcomes of two types of lamellar keratoplasty, Descemet Stripping Endothelial Keratoplasty (DSEK) and Descemet Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty (DMEK).
