Dr. Shelley Boyd, an ophthalmologist and retinal specialist at St. Michael's Hospital, was instrumental in developing what has become the standard of care for the "wet" form of the disease. Dr. Boyd worked with Novartis in 2002-04 to develop Lucentis, a drug injected into the eye every four to six weeks for people with wet AMD. Dr. Boyd noted that Lucentis went from being a good idea in the lab to the standard of treatment in clinics very quickly, making it "one of the most successful knowledge translation stories you will ever hear."
Her hope is to do the same for the dry version of AMD. This spring Dr. Boyd will open the first dedicated high-risk dry AMD clinic in Canada. She recently acquired an imaging device known as a confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscope that will allow her to provide high-resolution, topographic images of the macula . With this device she can better evaluate a patient's risk of disease progression and describe the various subtypes of the disease.

After graduate training in Molecular Neurobiology, she studied Medicine, and is a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Canada, with specialization in Ophthalmology. She has three Fellowships in Medical Retina, Ocular Pathology, and Cell Biology (Angiogenesis) - the first two from University College London, UK, and the latter from the Scripps Research Institute, California. After less than one year in academia, she accepted the position of Disease Expert with the Novartis Institute of Biomedical Research (NIBR), Basel, Switzerland, where she was Director, world-wide, of the ophthalmology pre-clinical ocular angiogenesis division. She was also head of the NIBR ophthalmology translational program where she was responsible for strategic planning, and importantly, for ensuring that the pre-clinical models and the methodologies used to study them were directly relevant and aligned with clinically available outcome measures. Having returned to the University of Toronto three years ago, she dedicates over 90% of her time to basic research, where she focuses on transgenic models of diabetic retinopathy, acute retinal neurodegeneration, and retinal stem cells. She is currently Founding Director of Toronto's adult Visual Electrophysiology Unit, and within these three years has obtained over $4 million of funding from the CIHR, CHRP (Canadian Health Research Program), the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund, the Canadian Diabetes Association, and several others.
