      Collapse Overview
      Dr. German is a Professor in the Department of Medicine at UCSF, Clinical Director of the UCSF Diabetes Center, Director of the UCSF NIH Diabetes Research Center (DRC) and the UCSF Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism Fellowship Training Program, and a Principle Investigator in the Hormone Research Institute and the Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regeneration Medicine and Stem Cell Research at UCSF. He cares for patients at the UCSF Diabetes Clinic and hospital wards, teaches medical students and housestaff, and lectures at the UCSF Diabetes Center’s patient self-management training courses, while maintaining a basic research laboratory investigating diabetes. The central focus of Dr.German’s research program is the pancreatic beta-cells. His group studies the mechanisms that underlie beta-cell formation and function, where these mechanisms break down in diabetes, and the translation of our knowledge of the beta-cell into novel strategies for curing diabetes.
