Bryan F. Shaw, Ph.D.

Posted on 2017-03-03

Dr. Shaw is a professor of chemistry at Baylor University. Bryan’s oldest son Noah is a survivor of bilateral retinoblastoma. Noah’s experience inspired Bryan and his colleagues at Baylor to create the free smartphone app CRADLE (short for: ComputeR Assisted Detector of LEukocoria). Also known as “The White Eye Detector,” CRADLE allows parents and clinicians to examine children for leukocoria using a cell phone. CRADLE has been used across the world—from big cities in Germany to small villages in Guatemala—to initiate the diagnoses of retinoblastoma, Coats’ disease, cataract, myelin retinal nerve fiber layer, and refractive error. CRADLE helps parents know The Glow!
