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.
