Gerd Geerling, M.D., Professor of Ophthalmology

Prof Dr. Med. Gerd Geerling (D.O.B. 09.06.1965, Cologne/Germany) studied Medicine at the University of Aachen, where he in 1994 completed his MD work in the Department of Ophthalmology, while working with Martin Reim on severe alkali burns (Title of thesis: "Examination of severely burned human corneal and conjunctival tissue from keratoplasty, redo keratoplasty and peridectomy with scannning electron microscopy and energy dispersive x-ray analysis"). From 1992 to 1997, he trained as resident at the Department of Ophthalmology, University of Lübeck/Germany (Director: Prof. Dr. Horst Laqua). From 1997 until 2000 and again in 2003, he received subspecialist training in corneal, external and adnexal eye diseases at Moorfields Eye Hospital/London, United Kingdom. There he worked with John Dart, Richard Collin, Geoffrey Rose and Peng Khaw on ocular surface disease and artificial tear substitutes. After returning to Germany in 2000, he worked as an equivalent to Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon again in Lübeck, where he also became Director of the Laboratory for Experimental Ophthalmology Department. In 2003 he completed his Habilitation in Ophthalmology (equivalent to PhD, Title: Natural Tear Substitutes) and became - until August 2005 - Reader in Ophthalmology and Senior Managing Consultant of the Department of Ophthalmology in Lübeck. In September 2005 he took the official chair of Professor at the University of Würzburg, Germany, where he now also serves as Deputy Director of the Department of Ophthalmology.
Dr. Geerling's clinical and scientific interests are the functional unit of the ocular surface and adnexae and new treatment modalities for dry eyes. This includes surgical approaches to treat the most severe cases of the disease. Natural forms of tear substitution such as salivary gland transplantation and autologous serum and evaluating and minimizing the toxicity of lubricants have been in the center of his research. He is author of 201 scientific presentations (113 as first author), 80 printed publications (38 as first author, 50 in peer reviewed journals), has written several book chapters and is currently editing a book on surgical management options for dry eyes. He has tutored 8 MD students and organized several national and international symposia, the last at the meeting of the European Society of Ophthalmology in Berlin in September 2005. He was awarded a number of scientific prizes including the "Leonhard-Klein Award" (1998) of the German Charity Council, Norman-Rowe Prize (2000) of the British Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons and picked up a total of 1.100.000 grant money so far. He was involved and holds several patents on pharmaceutical preparations for the treatment of the ocular surface and has consulted for Pfizer and Novartis. He serves in the cornea special interest group of the German Ophthalmic Society, the Medical Scientific Advisory Board of the Tear Film and Ocular Surface Society (TFOS) and was actively involved in the recent DEWS-consensus conferences of international Dry Eye experts. He is Editor of the journal "Current Eye Research" and serves on other Editorial Boards. He is a member of ARVO, DOG, TFOS, ESOPRS and is an Honorary Member of SICSSO.
