About Mark L Brantly
I bring over 35 years of experience in medicine to my role as a professor of medicine and the vice chair of research in the University of Florida Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care & Sleep Medicine. I am also a research professor for the UF Alpha-1 Research Program. I want to help people with serious respiratory disorder and help cure alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency, a part of my goal to provide the best care for my patients.
I earned my medical degree from the University of Florida College of Medicine. Shortly after, I completed an internal medicine residency at Eastern Virginia Medical School. Then, I completed a pulmonary disease and critical care fellowship at the National Institute of Health in Maryland.
I received the UF College of Medicine award for best clinical researcher. I also received the John W. Walsh PAR Award for Excellence from the American Thoracic Society in 2018. I am a member of the American Thoracic Society and American Society for Cell Biology.
In my free time, I enjoy outdoor activities such as kayaking through the rivers and hiking in the mountains.
