       Overview 
       Overview
      Gabriel Ortiz, MD, PhD completed medical training at the Weill Cornell Medical College and graduate training at The Rockefeller University as a student in the Tri-Institutional MD-PhD Program. He went on to an Internal Medicine residency at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). He served as a Chief Resident in the Department of Medicine at UCSF and subsequently completed fellowship training in Infectious Diseases before recently joining the Division of Hospital Medicine.

      While at UCSF, Dr. Ortiz has performed biomedical research focused on HIV immunology in the laboratory of Dr. Joseph M. McCune. His research activities have aimed at understanding the importance of innate immune responses in HIV infection, with a focus on myeloid cell subsets. This work has culminated in two submitted publications to the Journal of Infectious Diseases and Molecular and Cellular Proteomics. This work has also extended into a new line of investigation focused on how the development of the immune system, particularly of myeloid cell subsets, may impact childhood vaccine responses.

      Dr. Ortiz was most recently hired as an Assistant Clinical Professor in the Division of Hospital Medicine at San Francisco General Hospital, UCSF. He will continue to devote a small fraction of his time to studying the immune system. In addition, he practices hospital medicine and plans to apply his extensive biomedical training towards improving patient outcomes and satisfaction, decreasing in-hospital infection rates, and exploring co-management services.
