The role will see Professor Ho, who is chief scientist at the Brien Holden Vision Institute (BHVI), mentor and support PhD students in the institution’s biomedical engineering department.

Commenting on his appointment, chair of biomedical engineering at the University of Miami, Professor Fabrice Manns, said: “Deep down, Arthur is really an engineer. His approachable, easy going, caring and collegiate attitude combined with his deep expertise make him a favourite of our students since the early days when he worked with us.”

Professor Ho has worked at the university since the early 90s, teaching students about the optics of the eye, clinical aspects of instrumentation and statistical analysis.

On the position, Professor Ho said: “I am delighted to take on this role. Through the decades of collaboration between our two institutions, I have come to consider the University of Miami my research ‘home away from home.”
