    Dr. Emily R. Perito is an assistant professor at UCSF who specializes in pediatric liver disease, pediatric liver transplant, and pediatric gastroenterology. She completed fellowship in Pediatric Gastroenterology and in Pediatric Transplant Hepatology at UCSF. During her fellowship, Dr. Perito also earned a Master's Degree in Clinical Research at UCSF. She is board-certified in pediatrics, pediatric gastroenterology, and pediatric transplant hepatology.

    Dr. Perito treats all types of pediatric liver, pancreatic, and gastrointestinal diseases, in all ages from newborns through young adults. She is a member of UCSF's multi-disciplinary pediatric liver transplant team with expertise in the care of children with pediatric liver disease before and in the long-term after transplant. She is also co-director of the Pediatric Pancreas Program at UCSF BCH.

    Dr. Perito is a clinical and translational researcher whose interests focus on long-term outcomes for children with liver and pancreatic diseases. She is currently leading an NIH-sponsored study about post-transplant metabolic syndrome in pediatric liver transplant recipients. She is also active in epidemiologic research about organ allocation for children awaiting research. She is an investigator in the INSPPIRE consortium, which studies chronic pancreatitis in children and adolescents, as well as multi-center studies on liver transplant outcomes.

    Before coming to UCSF, Dr. Perito did her pediatrics training and medical school at Columbia University in New York City.
