Brian C Samuels, MD, PhD

Dr. Samuels completed his combined M.D./Ph.D. program at Indiana University School of Medicine, earning his doctoral degree in medical neurobiology. He obtained his ophthalmology residency training at the Callahan Eye Foundation Hospital at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). After residency, he completed a two-year clinical and research fellowship in glaucoma at the Duke Eye Center in Durham, NC. Samuels returned to Indiana as an Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology at the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Eye Institute at the Indiana University School of Medicine. He and his team of collaborators are focused on identifying how certain areas within the brain help regulate both intraocular pressure as well as intracranial pressure and how these two measures might be involved in the development and progression of glaucoma.
