Autonomic Disorders

Meredith Bryarly, M.D.
Assistant Professor

My research interests include postural tachycardia syndrome (POTS), post-COVID syndrome, multiple system atrophy (MSA), Parkinson disease with autonomic involvement, orthostatic hypotension and pure autonomic failure. My focus is on treatment options and better understanding of these diseases. I am also interested in how exercise can be used as a therapeutic intervention for autonomic disorders.

Our laboratory focuses on identifying and characterizing autoantibodies that are important in autonomic disorders with a particular interest in antibodies against cell membrane receptors. We are also focused on clinical research to better understand autoimmune and autonomic neurological disorders (including multiple system atrophy, autoimmune autonomic neuropathy, POTS and autoimmune encephalitis).  This includes active therapeutic clinical trials.
