Michael Dattilo

Dr. Michael Dattilo, MD, PhD

I recently completed my ophthalmology residency and a 2-year fellowship in Neuro-ophthalmology at Emory. I am currently on a Vision Science Training Grant (T32) and hope to use the data from the T32 grant to apply for further funding, which will allow me to begin my career as a clinician-scientist.
