Narsing Rao, MD, one of the University of California’s foremost educators, researchers, clinicians and leaders, has ensured that his passion for teaching will impact generations to come by making a generous gift to establish the Narsing Rao, MD, Endowed Lectureship Fund at the USC Roski Eye Institute, part of Keck Medicine of USC, and the Department of Ophthalmology at the Keck School of Medicine of USC. The lectureship will bring together distinguished scholars and practitioners of ophthalmology with the field’s emerging minds at the Keck School.

Rao has shaped the field of ophthalmology and made critical scientific contributions that advanced understanding of eye disorders. As a former interim dean of the Keck School, previous chair of the Department of Ophthalmology and co-director of the USC Roski Eye Institute, his leadership has had a tremendously positive ripple effect.

Now, through this remarkable philanthropic contribution, he is making a new and lasting mark on Keck Medicine and the Keck School.
