Giuseppe Cullaro


Native New Yorker with unfortunate sports allegiances

Dr. Giuseppe Cullaro is a hepatologist who cares for adults with liver diseases, including patients who need transplant surgery.

Cullaro's research interests lie at the intersection of hepatology and nephrology, the study of kidney disorders. Specifically, his research focuses on improving outcomes for patients with end-stage liver disease by identifying predictive markers – substances in the body that can be measured – of future kidney dysfunction, with the aim of developing preventive treatments.

Cullaro earned his medical degree at Boston University School of Medicine. He completed a residency in internal medicine at New York Presbyterian Hospital — Columbia University. He completed a fellowship in gastroenterology and a master of advanced study degree in clinical research at UCSF. He completed an advanced/transplant hepatology fellowship at New York Presbyterian Hospital — Weill Cornell Medicine and Columbia University. He belongs to the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases, American College of Gastroenterology, American Society of Transplantation and American Gastroenterological Association.

As an undergraduate at Boston University, Cullaro played NCAA Division I soccer. A native New Yorker, he enjoys rooting for his hometown sports teams and trying to master his grandmother's focaccia recipe in his free time.
