Christopher D. Conrady

Dr. Conrady graduated from the MD/PhD program at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center with a PhD in immunology. He then went to the University of Utah for his internship, ophthalmology residency, and uveitis fellowship (inflammation in the eye). Upon completion of uveitis fellowship, Dr. Conrady moved to the University of Michigan where he underwent further surgical training of the vitreous and retina such as repairing retinal detachments, dislocated lenses, epiretinal membranes, vitreous opacities, and medical and surgical management of intraocular infections and lymphoma.

Dr. Conrady then joined the faculty the UNMC Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences. He also practices through UNMC's primary clinical partner, Nebraska Medicine, as a dual fellowship-trained specialist in uveitis and vitreoretinal surgery.

Research Interests
Dr. Conrady's scientific interests include infectious and non-infectious causes of uveitis. He currently oversees a lab dedicated to identifying important immune responses to viral and bacterial infections of the retina and vitreous respectively to utilize these pathways as potential therapeutic targets to improve outcomes of these irreversible blinding conditions.
