  • Julian Wolf MD, MS

    Julian Wolf MD, MS

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Ophthalmology

    BioDr. Julian Wolf M.D., M.S. is a clinician-scientist, ophthalmologist, and postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Ophthalmology, Stanford University. Dr. Wolf engages in translational research with the goal of finding new therapies for blinding eye diseases, including age-related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. His interests include combining cutting-edge omics technology, systems biology, and artificial intelligence to assess the mechanisms of aging and disease of the human eye that he validates in animal and in vitro models.

    Dr. Wolf graduated medical school in Germany and started his ophthalmology residency training at the University of Freiburg, where he was awarded the Henning Zügel Foundation Award for excellence in research. He identified a new therapeutic target for neovascular age-related macular degeneration and developed a web resource ( that allows scientists to explore his data covering gene expression profiles of human eye diseases. For his work, he was awarded the prestigious Helmholtz Research Award of the German Society of Ophthalmology.

    As a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Ophthalmology at Stanford University, Dr. Wolf developed computational methods that integrate liquid biopsy proteomics, single cell transcriptomics, and artificial intelligence to investigate aging and disease mechanisms at the cell level in living patients (Wolf et al., Cell, 2023). For his work, he was awarded the Research Award of the VitreoRetinal Surgery Foundation. Dr. Wolf graduated with a Master of Science in Translational Research and Applied Medicine from Stanford University. Together with world-class scientists, industry leaders, and successful entrepreneurs, he developed strategies how his scientific discoveries in the laboratory could one day improve his patients' lives.

    Dr. Wolf has published 38 peer-reviewed manuscripts, among them first-authorships in Cell, BBA Molecular Basis of Disease, and Genomics.
