Biographical Sketch 
Dr. Lloyd received his BS from Auburn University and his MD (1997) and Ph.D. (Physics, 1996) from Emory University. He completed a residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and a Fellowship in Cardiovascular Disease, with emphasis on Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance, in 2004. After completing fellowship, Dr. Lloyd joined the faculty at UAB as an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Cardiovascular Disease. He is currently Associate Professor of Medicine and Radiology and Associate Division Director for Education and Training, and serves as the Program Director of the Cardiovascular Disease Residency Program and as Head of the Section for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance. Dr. Lloyd coordinates the clinical and research activities of the UAB Cardiovascular MRI Center, where he guided the facility to accreditation by the Intersocietal Commission for Accreditation of Magnetic Resonance Laboratories (ICAMRL) in 2007—making it the first Cardiovascular MR Center fully reviewed and accredited by ICAMRL. It has been continuously accredited since that time. He also is President of the Alabama Chapter of the American College of Cardiology (2011 – 2015) and a member of the Board of Governors of the American College of Cardiology and the ACC Publications Committee.

Research/Clinical Interest
Use of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (CMR) Imaging and Spectroscopy to study the heart and vascular system Flow and motion quantitation by CMR Application of physics and engineering principles to study heart and vascular physiology and mechanics Impact of diet and other environmental factors on response to myocardial ischemia / infarction & reperfusion injury
