Deborah Adey, MD

Nephrologist

Dr. Deborah Adey joined the UCSF Kidney Transplant Service in July 1997 after completing a post-doctoral fellowship at UCSF Medical Center. She has a particular interest in treating kidney transplant patients with recurrent focal segmental glomerular sclerosis (FSGS). Her research in this area has addressed factors that contribute to long term allograft loss and interventions aimed at lowering high antibody levels in patients awaiting kidney transplant.

Adey attended medical school at the University of Colorado Heath Sciences Center in Denver, Colo. She completed an internal medicine residency at the University of Vermont in Burlington. Her first two years of nephrology fellowship were completed at the University of Vermont, where she studied protein metabolism in kidney failure. At the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., she was further trained in transplantation. As part of her teaching activities, Adey runs the UCSF Nephrology Fellows lecture series and is director of the Transplant Nephrology Fellowship at UCSF
