The Early Neuropathy Assessment (ENA) is a group of clinician-scientists lead by Professor Rayaz Malik, based in the Research Division, Weill Cornell Medicine. The ENA group have pioneered the use of in vivo corneal confocal microscopy (CCM) as a rapid, non-invasive ophthalmic instrument to monitor damage and repair of corneal (sub-basal) nerves and act as a surrogate endpoint in diabetic and other peripheral neuropathies. The group have also developed ACCMetrics, a fully automated image analysis software allowing rapid and objective quantification of corneal nerve fibre morphology.
