Speakers

Jorge Calzada, MD, PhD
Deep Blue Retina @Memphis, Tennessee
Dr. Jorge Calzada graduated valedictorian from his hometown University of Panama Medical School in 1996. He completed a basic neuroscience research fellowship, followed by ophthalmology residency and retina surgery fellowship at the University of Tennessee. He joined Charles Retina Institute as vitreoretinal surgeon until 2019. He founded Panamerican Vitreoretinal Consultants in the Republic of Panama and later the specialty clinic Deep Blue Retina in the Memphis metro region in Tennessee. In the research space he has been principal investigator for over a dozen clinical trials, including phase 1, 2 and 3 studies, in the fields of macular diseases and gene therapy. He has worked with industry in the development of microsurgical tools and digital microscopy. He graduated as Surgical Leadership Scholar from Harvard Medical School and is adjunct professor of Ophthalmology and Vision Science at the University of Nebraska and has performed over 6000 vitrectomy surgeries.
