Wayne State University Medical Center former ophthalmology chair dies at 94


Former chair of ophthalmology at Wayne State University's School of Medicine in Detroit Robert Jampel, MD, PhD, died Nov. 26 at 94 years old.

He served as the ophthalmology chair and director of the Kresge Eye Institute from 1970 to 1994, according to a Nov. 29 press release.

"Dr. Jampel was my chairman as a medical student and resident," Mark Juzych, MD, chair of the department of ophthalmology, visual and anatomical sciences, said in the statement. "He was a humble and kind person who treated everyone with deep respect. He was a devoted father and family man."

Under his leadership, the Kresge Eye Institute grew and relocated twice. He recruited many faculty and research scientists to the institute, which has become a leader in the treatment of cataracts, glaucoma and corneal disease, among other eye conditions.
