Andrew Barbour MD, PhD


Andrew Barbour, MD, PhD grew up in Fairfax, Virginia and obtained a PhD in fisheries ecology and management with a focus on statistical modeling. As a medical student, he focused his research on immune based therapies, specifically using CAR-T cells for treatment of glioblastoma, and developing immunologically silent tumor implantation in mouse models. He also developed an interest in how to better use opiates for symptom palliation, the future of artificial intelligence in healthcare, and healthcare leadership. His hobbies include fishing, golf, cooking & exploring restaurants, wine & whiskey, and travel.
