Dr. Rachel Kutchtey was recruited to Vanderbilt Eye Institute as a clinician scientist in 2005 after a fellowship-training in Glaucoma. Over the past 10 years, she has devoted 50 percent of her time to glaucoma patient care and the other 50 percent to glaucoma research and teaching. 

In addition to teaching ophthalmology residents and medical students, she has taught an ocular genomics course to Vanderbilt inter-discipline graduate students for the past three years. Her primary research interest is to identify disease genes in glaucoma and to study their normal physiological and pathological roles in glaucoma.
