Antoine Ribieras, Candidate Member
University of Miami
I am a general surgery resident and current research fellow at the University of Miami. My primary focus is on gene and cell-based therapies in preclinical models of limb-threatening ischemia. I also have clinical interests in healthcare disparities and outcomes in vascular and bariatric surgery. As a candidate member, I would first aim to increase awareness of the AAS and its resources to surgical trainees with the goal of fostering career-long involvement in the community. Beyond expanding and systematically updating user profiles, the Membership Committee is uniquely positioned to connect aspiring and established academic surgeons. Working with the Technology and Communications Committee, I would look to use virtual platforms to facilitate mentorship and interest-based group discussions across institutions.
