UPMC Vascular Surgeon Wins Award to develop non surgical therapies to unblock arteries
Ryan McEnaney, MD

Vascular Cures and the Society of Vascular Surgery named Ryan McEnaney, MD, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, as the 2016 Wylie Scholar. The Wylie Scholar Program, now in its 20th year, awards three-year $150,000 research grants to young vascular surgeon-scientists to pursue innovative basic or clinical research projects. It is one of the most important grants for early-stage scientists as it launches their ability to successfully compete for NIH and other grants. Dr. McEnaney is the 19th Wylie Scholar and the 4th Scholar from UPMC. Dr. McEnaney’s research may ultimately lead to the development of medical therapies to unblock arteries for patients for whom surgical procedures are not an option. Dr. McEnaney received his medical degree from the Saint Louis University School of Medicine and completed his residency at UPMC, where he served as administrative chief resident in vascular surgery. He is board certified in vascular surgery. Dr. McEnaney’s surgical interests include peripheral vascular disease, aortic aneurysms, venous diseases, and vascular access. His scientific research focuses on the molecular biology and biochemistry of vascular adaptation to occlusive disease. To learn more about Dr. McEnaney’s work click here.
