Brief Bio

Guy Reed, MD, MS, is an internationally recognized and renowned cardiologist, physician-scientist, educator and health administrator. As dean, he spearheads the college’s proud tradition of excellence in advancing medical education, research and clinical care in the state of Arizona and beyond.

Dr. Reed graduated from Columbia University in New York City, where he received his bachelor’s degree in English literature and pre-medical studies. He received a master’s degree in mathematical statistics and his medical degree from Stanford University.

He did his internship, residency and chief residency in internal medicine at Yale University. He completed his fellowship in cardiovascular disease at Massachusetts General Hospital and a postdoctoral research fellowship in biochemistry and molecular biology at Harvard Medical School. For a decade and half, Dr. Reed served in positions of progressive responsibility as a cardiologist at Massachusetts General Hospital and as a faculty member at Harvard Medical School and Harvard School of Public Health. His research interests led him to the "stroke belt" in the southern states, where he served as Lemuel Diggs professor and chair of the Department of Medicine at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, as well as the interim executive vice president for Methodist Le Bonheur HealthCare.

Dr. Reed has published extensively in the areas of thrombosis and heart failure and holds more than 30 patents. His research has been funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and other extramural sources for nearly 30 years. Through grant support from the NIH, he translated his laboratory research findings into an innovative, clot-dissolving therapy to treat patients with strokes and heart attacks, which is now in clinical trials.
