Bryan Noe holds degrees from Goshen College (BA), West Virginia University (MA) and the University of Minnesota (PhD). After postdoctoral training in cell biology, he joined the faculty of the Department of Anatomy (now Cell Biology) in the School of Medicine (SOM) at Emory University and attained the rank of Full Professor in 1983. Noe's research interests centered on posttranslational processing of peptide hormone precursors. He has held multiple grants from NSF and NIH and is principal author or co-author of numerous papers in the peer reviewed literature, as well as book chapters and invited monographs in this field of research.

Noe has had a longstanding commitment to graduate education. While at Emory, in addition to mentoring predoctoral and postdoctoral trainees in his own laboratory, Noe held numerous administrative positions that had an impact on the education of predoctoral and postdoctoral trainees. He was Associate Director of an NIH postdoctoral training grant in endocrinology, Associate Director of a predoctoral training program in Cell Biology, PI on a PREP training grant from NIH, Director of Graduate Studies for his home department from 1977 to 1991, and served as Director of the Graduate Division of Biological and Biomedical Sciences from 1991 to 2003. Noe also served as Vice Chair and Interim Chair of his home department, as Assistant Dean for Graduate Education in the School of Medicine, as Associate Dean for Research in the Graduate School, and two and a half years as Interim Dean of the Graduate School at Emory.

On November 1, 2005 Noe assumed the position of Dean of the Graduate School at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). Since that time, Noe and the Graduate School staff have mounted numerous new initiatives which are designed to have a positive impact on graduate education at UAB. Currently he is PI on an IRACDA grant from NIH which supports postdoctoral trainees who, in addition to pursuing research training, spend 25% of their time developing their teaching skills.
