About Andrew J Bryant
As an associate professor of medicine at the University of Florida Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine, I treat patients with pulmonary hypertension. Likewise, my primary research is focused in pulmonary hypertension. My overall objective is to define the systematic effects of pulmonary hypertension, specifically the role of bone marrow-derived cells in disease progression, and using data to uncover new drug targets for treatment of pulmonary hypertension. Additionally, I wear the hat of general pulmonologist and critical care physician. As a physician, I strive to provide excellent care tailored to my patients’ individual needs.
I earned my medical degree from Wake Forest University School of Medicine. Then, I went on to complete my residency in internal medicine and fellowship in pulmonary and critical care medicine at Vanderbilt University. I hold several professional affiliations, including the American College of Physicians, Society of Critical Care Medicine, American College of Chest Physicians and the American Thoracic Society.
I have been fortunate to receive multiple awards for excellence in research from the American Thoracic Society, American Lung Association and several other biomedical-related foundations. My current research projects are funded through two National Institutes of Health grants.
In my leisure time, I enjoy traveling, spending time with my family and learning how to play the classical guitar.
