She also is interested in clinical trials related to ocular and vision research. Prior to 2003, Lee McCaffrey was on the faculty of The Wilmer Clinical Trials and Biometry Division of the Ophthalmology Department in the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. She was Co-Principal Investigator of Quality of Life: The Collaborative Ocular Medanoma Study (a large multi-center clinical trial with sites in the U.S. and Canada), and served on the faculty of the Submacular Surgery Trials and Macular Photcoagulation Studies.
