About Dr. Gammon

Dr. Bryan Gammon was born in Texas, and completed his undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering with highest honors at the University of Texas. After graduation, he worked for two years as an engineer at a Department of Defense-funded sonar development laboratory focused on high-resolution imaging.  He then obtained his medical degree from the University of Texas Southwestern in 2008. During medical school, Dr. Gammon was the recipient of a coveted Clinical Research Training Program fellowship at the National Institutes of Health. He was chosen from a nationwide pool of applicants to spend a year of intense research under the guidance of Dr. Sam T. Hwang. He studied the role of chemokines, small chemicals that cause cells to migrate, in the metastasis of malignant melanoma, and developed a novel monoclonal antibody to identify metastatic melanoma cells in a mouse disease model.

Dr. Gammon completed his internship at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana, and his dermatology residency at Northwestern University in Chicago, where he was asked to serve as Chief Resident. After residency, Dr. Gammon completed an additional year of specialized training in dermatopathology at Stanford University. He is one of a very select group of dermatologists in the area that is board certified in dermatology and board eligible in dermatopathology.

Dr. Gammon is passionate about educating and advancing the field of dermatology. He has been asked to lecture on his research both nationally and internationally for his work in lymphoma, melanoma and dermatology-specific quality of life measures. For his work on the use of fluorescence in situ hybridization for the diagnosis of melanoma he won 2nd place in the Everett Fox basic science research competition at the 69th American Academy of Dermatology annual meeting. Later, for his work characterizing rare cutaneous T cell lymphomas, he won the Physician In Training award for the top poster research presentation at the 48th annual meeting of the American Society of Dermatopathology. Dr. Gammon has published over 30 original articles and abstracts in such highly regarded journals as the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, the Archives of Dermatology, and the American Journal of Surgical pathology, and has written four book chapters.  

Dr. Gammon enjoys all aspects of dermatology.  He trained at two of the premier centers for cutaneous lymphoma in the country, and has a special interest in complex medical dermatology and lymphomas of the skin.  In his free time, Dr. Gammon enjoys traveling with his wife, hiking, and cooking.
