Director of the Pediatric Lipid Clinic

Dr. Mary Malloy, is co-director of the Adult Lipid Clinic and the director of the Pediatric Lipid Clinic, which she established in 1971. She is a graduate of the UCSF School of Medicine. She completed her internship, residency and a fellowship in pediatrics at the University of Washington and UCSF. She is a professor emeritus of medicine and pediatrics; and is a senior investigator in the Cardiovascular Research Institute. She has published widely on her research and clinical experience in journals and book chapters. Malloy's research interests have included lipoprotein metabolism, management of disorders of lipoproteins and the genetic bases of heart disease and stroke. She is a fellow of the American Heart Association and a diplomate of the American Board of Clinical Lipidology. She is consulted by physicians in the U.S. and abroad for help with diagnosis and management of complex cases involving lipoprotein disorders in children.
