    Collapse Overview
    Linus Shen is an ophthalmology resident at the University of California, San Francisco, with a background in biomedical and optical engineering, imaging analysis, and retinal diseases. He received his Bachelor of Engineering degree summa cum laude from Duke University, where he worked on intraoperative optical coherence tomography, and co-invented and patented a stereoscopic heads-up display system for ophthalmic surgeries under the guidance of Drs. Joseph Izatt and Cynthia Toth. He then earned his medical degree cum laude from Yale School of Medicine. In medical school, Linus co-developed a novel statistical method to study the long-term natural history of diseases. Using this method, he investigated the decades-long progression of geographic atrophy, choroideremia, and Stargardt disease under the mentorship of Dr. Lucian Del Priore. He also studied the development of retinal nerve fiber in preterm infants using optical coherence tomography in Dr. Cynthia Toth’s lab. To date, Linus has authored/co-authored over 30 peer-reviewed publications. As an aspiring physician-scientist, Linus is passionate about understanding the nature of ocular diseases and translating novel imaging techniques to improve the management of eye diseases.
