Hong Jiang, M.D. Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor of Neurology and Ophthalmology at the University of Miami, Miller School of Medicine. She earned her undergraduate medical degree from Zhejiang University in Hangzhou, China. She received her Ph.D. at the University of Hong Kong in Hong Kong, China. Dr. Jiang completed her Neurology residency training at Jackson Memorial Hospital/University of Miami, and her Neuro-ophthalmology fellowship at Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, University of Miami.

As a neuro-ophthalmologist at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, Dr. Jiang specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of various neuro-ophthalmologic disorders, such as vision loss due to brain tumor or dementia, optic neuritis and double vision. In the Department of Neurology, Dr. Jiang provides expertise in the evaluation and treatment of various neurologic diseases such as memory disorders, headaches, spine diseases and Multiple Sclerosis.

Dr. Jiang’s research interest is to study the ocular microvascular dysfunction in ocular and central nervous system diseases, such as dry eye, dementia and multiple sclerosis. She has multiple publications in ocular microvascular function studies. She is interested in studying the vascular pathway in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease. With support from both the McKnight Brain Institute and North American Neuro-Ophthalmology society (NANOS), she and her team at Bascom Palmer Eye Institute recently found that decreased retinal microvascular network density and blood flow volume in patients with Alzheimer’s disease compared to normal controls.

Dr. Jiang is a member of the North American Neuro-Ophthalmology Society (NANOS), the American Academy of Neurology (AAN), the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) and the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO).

Christian J. Camargo, MD

Dr. Camargo did his undergraduate studies at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT,) where he majored in Brain and Cognitive Sciences, and Music. He conducted research on the molecular and electrophysiological mechanisms of hippocampal synaptic plasticity and memory, and won the “Walle J.H. Nauta Award for Outstanding Research.” He attended and received his MD from the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine of Case Western Reserve University. He completed an internship in surgery at MedStar Washington Hospital Center where he was awarded the “Silvero Cabellon Award” for best performance by a junior resident by the Department of Vascular Surgery. He then completed his Neurology residency training at the University of Miami in 2017.  He completed his Fellowship in Cognitive and Behavioral Neurology at the University of Miami, as the Evelyn F. McKnight Brain Institute Fellow. Presently, in addition to his clinical and research roles in the Department of Neurology, he sits on the McKnight Brain Research Foundation’s Communications Workgroup, and was recently awarded the 2019 American Academy of Neurology / McKnight Brain Foundation Clinical Translational Research Scholarship.  His research interests include clinical interventions to promote synaptic recovery and repair, advanced imaging for improved Alzheimer’s Disease diagnosis in diverse populations, and the therapeutic use of stem cells in primary neurodegenerative disease.
