Scott Berceli, MD PhD

Dr. Scott Berceli is the Robert H. and Kathleen M. Axline Basic Science Professor of Surgery and Vice-Chair of Research for the Department of Surgery at the University of Florida. He is also the Section Chief of Vascular Surgery at the Malcolm Randall VAMC. He received his B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, followed by his M.D. and Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Pittsburgh. He then completed his residency in General Surgery at the Harvard-Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and subspecialty training in Vascular Surgery at the University of Washington.

Dr. Berceli’s overarching research focuses on the role of physical forces in modulating physiologic and maladaptive vascular adaptation. With research projects spanning from basic science to clinical, he has been continuously funded by the NIH for the last 20 years. He has served as a key investigator on two landmark clinical trials, the PREVENT III and Hemodialysis Fistula Maturation Consortium, which have advanced our fundamental understanding of vein graft biology and dialysis fistula maturation, respectively.
