Associate Professor of Medicine

University of Arizona College of Medicine

Dr. Bime is an Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Arizona College of Medicine, Tucson Arizona, USA. He obtained his MD degree from the University of Yaoundé 1, Cameroon, and a Master of Science in Epidemiology from Michigan State University School of Medicine, East Lansing MI, USA. Subsequently, he completed residency training in Internal Medicine at Wayne State University, Detroit MI, USA where he served as Chief Medical Resident for one year. He completed a postdoctoral clinical and research fellowship training in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in 2013. During fellowship training, he was funded by a National Research Service Award (NRSA) from the National Institutes of Health/National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIH/NIAID) to study the mechanisms through which nasal steroids control severe asthma associated with chronic rhinosinusitis. As part of the American Lung Association - Airways Clinical Research Centers ALA-ACRC) Data Coordinating Center (DCC) at Johns Hopkins University, he was actively involved in the design and conduct of three large multicenter randomized control trials in asthma.

In 2013, he joined the Division of Pulmonary, Allergy, Sleep, and Critical Care Medicine at the University of Arizona School of Medicine as Assistant Professor of Medicine. He has pursued clinical and translational research in asthma and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). His research is funded a mentored research scientist award (K08) from the NIH/NHLBI to explore the genetic and non-genetic factors that underlie the health disparities in ARDS susceptibility and associated mortality. As he transitions to independence, his lab is focused on identifying patient-specific (genetic and non-genetic) risk factors that underlie differential response to ARDS therapy. He is developing therapeutic response profiles that will guide a personalized approach to the ARDS management.
