Douglas A. Jabs, M.D., M.B.A has held funding from the National Eye Institute since 1986, including both clinical and bench research activities. He is the chairman of the Studies of Ocular Complications of AIDS (SOCA) Research Group, a multicenter clinical trials and epidemiology program, which has been in existence since 1988, has conducted five randomized clinical trials on the treatment of cytomegalovirus retinitis and now chairs an ongoing multicenter, prospective, cohort study of patients with AIDS for ocular complications and visual outcomes. He also is chairman of the Multicenter Uveitis Steroid Treatment (MUST) Trial, which is a multicenter, randomized clinical trial on the treatment of severe uveitis. His other research interests include the immunopathogenesis of autoimmune ocular disease, the epidemiology, molecular biology and clinical consequences of resistant cytomegalovirus among patients being treated for cytomegalovirus retinitis, and the treatment of uveitis. He has authored or coauthored over 200 publications and 44 book chapters. His areas of expertise include the treatment of uveitis and other ophthalmic inflammatory disorders, the ocular complications of autoimmune disease, immune deficiency and immune suppression, and cytomegalovirus retinitis.

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
