Dr. de Andrade completed his medical degree in 1990 at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS) in Porto Alegre, Brazil. He went on to complete a residency in Internal Medicine at Hospital de Clinicas de Porto Alegre (UFRGS) where he also served as Chief Medical Resident. He came to the United States in 1994 and completed a residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital and subsequently a fellowship in pulmonary and critical care medicine at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). He joined the faculty at UAB in 2000 and has risen to the rank of Associate Professor of Medicine. Dr. de Andrade established the UAB Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD) Program and serves as the Medical Director of the Medical ICU at the Birmingham VA Medical Center. More recently, he was appointed Associate Director of the Pulmonary and Critical Care Fellowship Program. Dr. de Andrade serves on a number of committees of the NIH/NHLBI Idiopathic Pulmonary Clinical Research Network (IPFnet) and is a member of the Steering Committee of the Diffuse and Interstitial Lung Disease Network of the American College of Chest Physicians.

Clinical Interests

The UAB Interstitial Lung Disease Program is part of the NIH/NHLBI IPFnet which is a network of specialized centers across the country formed by the NIH in order to develop better treatments for IPF.
