Dr. Quinn is known for his research on retinopathy of prematurity, assessment of visual function and ocular development, and vision screening and treatment of amblyopia in young children. He has helped develop techniques to assess disease or treatment modalities in infants and children who are at risk for developing severe retinopathy of prematurity. An active area of his research revolves around telemedicine and the digital imaging of the neonate ocular fundus while in the neonatal intensive care unit. Dr. Quinn leads a large NEI-funded study of remote evaluation of digital images from premature infants that has resulted in several recent publications.
In addition, Dr Quinn is a sought-after participant in international collaborations for the prevention of blindness from retinopathy of prematurity.
Dr. Quinn is the Principal Investigator for the multi-center, NEI-funded study, ?Telemedicine System for the Evaluating Acute-Phase Retinopathy of Prematurity.?
