Flora Hui

 

Flora Hui is a clinician scientist working as a Research Fellow (Industry Engagement) at the Department of Optometry & Vision Sciences in the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences and a Research Fellow at the Centre for Eye Research Australia (CERA). In her role at the University of Melbourne, Flora aims to promote an environment of research translation and commercialisation, with a particular interest in innovative methods to improve patient outcomes in optometry and ophthalmology and neuroprotectants for treating glaucoma.

Flora completed a Master of Philosophy and Doctor of Philosophy in the basic sciences, concentrating on animal models of glaucoma and using the retina as a biomarker for the brain. She moved into glaucoma clinical research afterwards, focusing on developing novel clinical tools to shorten the timeframe to detect glaucoma progression. This culminated in a world-first clinical trial investigating the potential of using high-dose nicotinamide as a neuroprotectant in human glaucoma. Building upon her preclinical work, Flora was involved in a landmark study investigating the use of hyperspectral retinal imaging to differentiate people who were diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.
