    Portrait of Maria Grant, MD

    Maria Grant, MD
    (Department of Pharmacology and Therapeutics, University of Florida)


    Dr. Maria Grant received her undergraduate education at University of Florida (UF), where she graduated with highest honors in chemistry. She completed medical school and an internal medicine residency and endocrinology fellowship at UF, followed by a research fellowship in ophthalmology at the Wilmer Eye Institute prior to joining the Department of Internal Medicine faculty at UF. Dr. Grant served as Division Chief of Endocrinology and Metabolism for 7 years until she joined the Department of Pharmacology and Therapeutics as a professor. She holds joint appointments in the Departments of Physiology and Functional Genomics, Ophthalmology, Medicine, and Psychiatry. Dr Grant's research is supported by the National Eye Institute, National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, and the Florida Department of Health (James and Esther King). She has served on a number of national service panels for the National Institutes of Health, including study section BPBE and the Governor's Advisory Board for Diabetes. Her research interests focus on understanding the role of adult bone marrow-derived progenitor populations during physiological and pathological neovascularization, particularly in diabetes. Dr. Grant's lab studies mechanisms that control circadian regulation of bone marrow cell release in health and in chronic conditions such as diabetes. The goal of the lab is developing novel strategies to optimize dysfunctional diabetic progenitors prior to their use in cell-based therapies to treat vascular complications.
