Giuseppe Cullaro, MD, MAS

Assistant Professor, Medicine

I lead research to prevent kidney-related morbidity and mortality in the cirrhosis patient. This is accomplished by identifying predictive markers of future kidney dysfunction—markers that may inform the mechanism of disease pathogenesis—and the trial of preventative and therapeutic strategies—treatments that may prevent the occurrence or halt the progression of kidney dysfunction in this population.

I earned my undergraduate and medical degrees from Boston University. I completed a residency in Internal Medicine at New York Presbyterian—Columbia University, followed by a gastroenterology fellowship at UCSF, and a transplant hepatology fellowship at New York Presbyterian—Cornell and Columbia University in 2020. I obtained a Master of Advanced Studies in Clinical Research through the UCSF Graduate Division in 2019.
