Author Bio


Ivan R. Schwab M.D. is currently a professor at the University of California, Davis where he has worked as an Ophthalmologist for over twenty years. His strong interest in biology and natural history has led him to investigate a diverse range of topics including ocular stem cells, bioengineered tissues for the eye, and comparative optics and physiology. He has published extensively in these fields and, on a lighter note, was the winner of the 2006 Ig Nobel Prize for Ornithology, for explaining why woodpeckers don’t get headaches.
