    Dr. Caraballo is an Assistant Professor in the Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care, Sleep, Allergy and Sleep Medicine. He received his MD from Universidad Central de Venezuela. After completing residency training in Internal Medicine at University of Iowa, he completed a fellowship in Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine at UCSF. He serves as an attending physician in the Pulmonary consult service at UCSF.

    Dr. Caraballo's research focuses on developing engineered cells to treat pulmonary firbosis. His work utilizes synthetic receptors to program immune cells to deliver gene-encoded blockers of the cytokine TGFβ to the fibrotic microenvironment. The goal of this work it to develop novel cell-based therapeutics to treat pulmonary disease.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
