Dr Jim Stringham

Research Fellow


Dr. Stringham earned his doctorate in experimental psychology and neuroscience from the University of New Hampshire in 2003, and did postdoctoral training at both Harvard Medical School and the Medical College of Georgia. He has since held positions at the University of Georgia, the United States Air Force Research Laboratory, and most recently the Duke Eye Center.  Nearly all of his research has been geared toward understanding visual and cognitive benefits of proper nutrition.  Recently, he became the Chief Scientific Officer of MacuHealth, where he is investigating new ways that nutrition can benefit visual and cognitive performance in athletes, visual and systemic health in those with metabolic disease, and neural health and development in children. At the NRCI, Dr. Stringham supervises student projects, writes up results of research projects, and helps to conceive of new research directions.
