Mitra Tavakoli is a Senior Lecturer in Medicine at University of Exeter Medical School. Her research primarily focuses on the establishment of the relatively novel technique of in vivo corneal confocal microscopy as a valid surrogate endpoint for human diabetic neuropathy and in a range of other peripheral neuropathies.  More recently her research is focused on novel approaches to investigate the structural and functional changes in the retina, and cornea of a range of vascular and neurological conditions.

Dr. Tavakoli research is funded by National Institute of Health Research (NIHR), National Institute of Health (NIH).  She frequently lectures at national and international meetings. She has published more than 75 peer-reviewed articles in the field. 

Mitra is a Fellow of the American Academy of Optometry (FAAO), a Fellow of the British Contact Lens Association (FBCLA), a member of College of Optometrist (MCOptom) and professional member of several other professional bodies including ARVO, ADA, EASD, Diabetes UK and NeuroDiab.

Mitra received several awards and nominations in recognition of her research, including the BCLA Irving Fatt Memorial Award Lecturer and Young Investigator Clinical Science Award from Neuropathy study group of European Association of Study of Diabetes (EASD).

She is currently a member of the American Diabetes Association annual conference scientific reviewing committee. She serves on the editorial boards of several journals including BMC Ophthalmology, BMC Endocrinology and Frontiers in Endocrinology.  Dr. Tavakoli is a regular peer reviewer for several leading journals in the fields of diabetes, neurology, and ophthalmology including Diabetes, Diabetes Care, IOVS, and Cornea. 

Dr. Tavakoli’s clinical practice as an optometrist is focused mainly on refractive surgery and intraocular lenses and management of complex cases.

Research

Research interests

The primary focus of my work is based on the assessment of corneal nerve morphology using a relatively new technique of in vivo corneal confocal microscopy as a valid surrogate endpoint for human diabetic neuropathy and in a range of other peripheral neuropathies.

Based on the contributions my colleagues and I have made to this field, we have pioneered the use of In Vivo Corneal Confocal Microscopy (IVCCM or CCM) as an ideal non-invasive surrogate marker for diabetic neuropathy (Tavakoli et al. 2010) and a range of other neuropathies including Idiopathic small fibre neuropathy with focusing on Impaired glucose tolerance (Tavakoli et al. 2011), Fabry disease (Tavakoli et al. 2009) and Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (Tavakoli et al. 2012). In parallel we showed for the fist time a strong correlation between invasive and none-invasive methods of measuring corneal sensitivity in diabetic patients, which also correlated with severity of neuropathy (Tavakoli et al. 2007).  We showed for the first time that CCM could be used to quantify early small nerve fibre damage with good sensitivity and specificity (Tavakoli et al. 2010).  Moreover, we have shown that corneal nerve damage assessed using CCM relates to the severity of intra epidermal nerve fibre loss (gold standard for small fibre damage) in foot skin biopsies (Quattrini et al. 2007; Chen et al. 2015). Of significant therapeutic potential we have shown that CCM detects nerve fibre regeneration within 6 months of pancreas transplantation in diabetic patients (Mehra et al. 2007; Tavakoli et al. 2013). Furthermore, we have also demonstrated an improvement in corneal nerve fibre density after improvement in glycaemic control, blood pressure and lipids (Tavakoli et al. 2011). Also in a large scale international collaborative project, we established a normative range for corneal nerve parameters ( Tavakoli et al. 2015).

One of latest development in our research was assessing the implementation of this technique to primary care for screening diabetic neuropathy which has been done for the the first time ( Tavakoli et al. 2016)  

Currently the focus of the research is on investigating the longitudinal changes in corneal nerves in diabetic neuropathy that can be detected earlier by CCM. We also investigate the potential application of CCM in range of other neuropathies including Parkinson Disease, peripheral neuropathy induced by chemotherapy, Burning mouth syndrome and patients with Idiopathic Small Fibre Neuropathy (ISFN). 

 The immediate clinical impact of this translational research is particularly exciting and this work represents a huge leap forward in terms of our ability to diagnose, follow progression and assess therapeutic response in patients with diabetic neuropathy and will have an immediate impact on patient clinical outcomes.

 

Research projects

The Ophthalmic-Vascular lab at the University of Exeter Medical School provides state-of the art clinical research facility for investigating the structural and functional performance of the neural and microvascular structures as a diagnostic and research based model. These ophthalmic markers uses in a range of systemic and vascular conditions in particular diabetes mellitus.

The lab is based at NIHR Exeter Clinical Research Facility at Research, Innovation, Learning and Development (RILD) building.
