    Jesse L. Berry, MD, received her undergraduate and medical degree from Harvard University in Massachusetts. Following her ophthalmology residency at the University of Southern California, she was the assistant chief of service at the Los Angeles County Medical Center. She then completed a fellowship in Ocular Oncology at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles under the mentorship of Drs. Jonathan Kim and A. Linn Murphree. Dr. Berry is the founder of WOO, Women in Ocular Oncology.

    Evaluation of the aqueous humor for tumor-derived genetic information and its application to prognosis and precision medicine for retinoblastoma patients. Investigating new methods of chemotherapy delivery for the treatment of Retinoblastoma. Evaluating treatment outcomes for Retinoblastoma eyes. This includes evaluation of treatment outcomes after systemic chemotherapy and the elucidation of factors present at diagnosis, which contribute to final visual outcome in eyes treated for retinoblastoma.
