Graham Quinn, MD, MSCE
Graham Quinn, MD, MSCE, is the Emeritus Director of Research in the Division of Pediatric Ophthalmology at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. He is also an Emeritus Professor of Ophthalmology at the University of Pennsylvania.
Dr. Quinn received his medical degree from Duke University School of Medicine in 1973. He completed an internship in internal medicine and a year of pathology residency at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland before moving to Philadelphia to complete his residency in ophthalmology at Penn. He did his fellowship training at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and stayed on as a member of the faculty in the Department of Ophthalmology at the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Quinn completed the master’s of science degree in Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the University of Pennsylvania.
Dr. Quinn’s interest areas are retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) and visual and ocular development in children. He was a principal investigator and member of the executive and editorial committees of the landmark CRYO-ROP study and PI of the Philadelphia center and worked with Velma Dobson, PhD in the Vision Testing center for ETROP. He served as a member of the original group that developed the International Classification of ROP and recently chaired a “revisiting” of the classification. He has participated in a large number of international conferences and workshops on ROP prevention and treatment in countries with rapidly developing neonatal care systems. Recent work has concentrated on early markers identifying at risk babies and also telemedicine in ROP.
As a consequence of the abnormal refractive errors that are frequently seen in premies, Dr. Quinn developed an interest in ocular growth and development and has established a collaborative clinical research effort in the Division focusing on the development of refractive error and patterns of ocular growth in children.
