Dr. Bell was born and raised in Cincinnati, and attended Anderson High School. In 1996, he received his Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry from Denison University, graduating in three years time. With a strong interest in research, he earned a Ph.D. in Biochemistry in 2001 from Wesleyan University in Connecticut while working to combat bacterial resistance to antibiotics. Following a short post-doctoral fellowship at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary and Harvard Medical School, Dr. Bell returned to Cincinnati and earned his medical degree in 2005 from the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. He did an internship in Internal Medicine at the University Hospital, and completed his residency at the same Hospital, serving as Chief Resident in his final year. He then spent 3 months doing a mini-fellowship in Refractive Surgery in New York with Drs. Eric Donnenfeld and Jack Dodick.
Dr. Bell has published many original scientific articles in several basic and clinical science journals. His topics range from the enzymology of bacterial resistance to antibiotics to cardiac pathophysiology during open heart surgery and the ocular molecular genetics of retinal degenerative disease. As a resident, he co-authored a book chapter on Iris Reconstruction Surgery for the leading textbook in corneal, refractive, and anterior segment surgery with Dr. Michael Snyder at Cincinnati Eye Institute.
Dr. Bell is a Volunteer Faculty of Ophthalmology with the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. He teaches ophthalmology residents how to perform cataract surgery at the VA Medical Center and University-Holmes Hospital.
