Charles Eberhart

CHARLES EBERHART, MD, PhD, the inaugural Charlotte A. Wilson and Margaret K. Whitener Professor of Ophthalmology, joined the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine faculty in 2001 and currently directs the Divisions of Neuropathology and Ophthalmic Pathology.

Dr. Eberhart received his MD and PhD degrees from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in 1997 and completed his postgraduate clinical training in anatomical pathology and neuropathology at The Johns Hopkins Hospital.

He works as both a diagnostic pathologist and a scientist studying how brain and eye diseases can be better classified and treated.

Much of Dr. Eberhart’s research centers on how Notch, Hedgehog, and other signaling pathways involved in normal development drive tumor growth through the regulation of stem cell phenotype. His work also focuses on identifying new genetic changes in neural and ocular surface tumors; he has a particular interest in pediatric tumors of the brain and eye.

Dr. Eberhart is a member of numerous organizations and is on the editorial boards of the Journal of Neuropathology and Experimental Neurology, Neuro-oncology, and Brain Pathology. In addition, he has published more than 250 original research articles on diseases of the brain and eye.
