      Peter Chin-Hong specializes in treating infectious diseases, particularly infections that develop in patients who have suppressed immune systems, such as solid organ and hematopoietic stem cell transplant recipients and HIV+ organ transplant recipients. He directs the immunocompromised host infectious diseases program at UCSF. His research focuses on human papillomavirus, Chagas disease and other donor derived infections in transplant recipients, and viral and fungal infections in patients with suppressed immune systems.

      He earned his undergraduate and medical degrees from Brown University, before completing an internal medicine residency and infectious diseases fellowship at UCSF, where he is Professor of Medicine and Director of the Pathways to Discovery Program in Clinical and Translational Research for the school of medicine. He holds the Academy Endowed Chair for Innovation in Teaching.

      He is a member of the UCSF Academy of Medical Educators and is course director of the Infection, Immunity and Inflammation block in the school of medicine, and the Designing Clinical Research course in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics. He has won several teaching awards including the UCSF Henry J. Kaiser Award for Excellence in Teaching in 2009, and Essential Core teaching awards from the classes of 2009, 2011, 2013 and 2014. He is interested in curriculum development, teaching with the electronic medical record, small group learning and interprofessional education.
