Mary Kyprianou, Ph.D., BCB, Senior Fellow


Dr. Kyprianou has nearly 30 years of experience helping those suffering with autonomic nervous system disorders from all over the world. In 2006, she focused her practice on POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome), an extreme and debilitating autonomic disorder in which most or all of the autonomic disorder symptoms are present at the same time. She has developed and implemented a program that has been evolving through the years with advanced computerized technology and is utilized effectively by the team of specialists at The POTS Treatment Center.

Dr. Kyprianou was the recipient of a Fellowship Award during her Doctoral Studies at Wayne State University and was involved in extensive research under the prestigious Nobel Prize Nominee Dr. Lida Mattman in Immunopathology and Pathogenic Bacteriology. Having been a lecturer and Distinguished Professor Award recipient in Anatomy and Physiology, she has also enjoyed being a speaker at numerous seminars and organizational meetings on autonomic nervous system disorders.
