Lorriana Leard, MD is an Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine and a board-certified pulmonologist who specializes in the care of patients with lung cancer and advanced lung diseases who are candidates for lung transplants. As an expert at the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center, she evaluates patients who have lung nodules, lung masses or symptoms suggestive of lung cancer, and she helped to establish the Lung Cancer Screening Program at UCSF. She also performs advanced bronchoscopic procedures, including Endobronchial Ultrasound (EBUS), tracheobronchial dilatation, tracheal and bronchial stent placement, transbronchial needle aspiration and biopsies, and gold fiducial placement in preparation for Cyberknife therapy.

Dr. Leard received her undergraduate degree from Stanford University and her M.D. from the University of California San Diego. After completing her Internal Medicine residency at the University of Texas Southwestern in Dallas, she came to the University of California San Francisco for her Pulmonary and Critical Care Fellowship. She completed an additional subspecialty fellowship in Lung Transplantation at the University of California San Francisco and joined the faculty in 2006.

Her major academic interests include Lung Transplantation, Interventional Bronchoscopy, and Lung Cancer. She cares for patients on the Lung Transplant service, and at the UCSF Helen Diller Comprehensive Cancer Center at Mt. Zion.
