Rageshree Ramachandran, MD, PhD
Research and Clinical Interests
My clinical work is in diagnostic surgical pathology with an emphasis on liver and gastrointestinal disease, including in-house cases and consultation cases sent to UCSF for diagnosis or for a second opinion. My current research focuses on (1) pathology-radiology correlation for a new quantitative ultrasound method used on pediatric liver biopsy patients and (2) assessment of fatty liver disease in pediatric post-liver transplant patients. In the education realm, I oversee pathology curriculum for first- and second-year UCSF medical students, direct the Pathology 150.03 senior medical student elective, and advise the Pathology Student Interest Group. I direct the Department of Pathology’s Mechanisms of Disease Conference series.
