Faculty ProfilesMeyeon Park, MD, MAS
My research focuses on the early diagnosis of kidney hypoxia, injury, and disease and the influence of cardiovascular disease on kidney disease onset and progression. Clinically, I see patients with all manifestations of hypertension and kidney disease, with a special focus on patients with polycystic kidney disease. I am the medical director of the UCSF PKD Center of Excellence and principal investigator of the UCSF Cardiovascular Risk After Kidney Transplantation (CARAKTER) study.
