Dr. Gregory Ku is an endocrinologist who cares for patients with all types of diabetes.
Ku’s research focuses on the beta cells of the pancreas, which normally produce insulin but are either destroyed or dysfunctional in type 1 and type 2 diabetes. In order to better treat diabetes, he investigates how to improve beta cell function, survival and proliferation.
Ku earned his doctorate in biomedical sciences as well as his medical degree in the UCSF Medical Scientist Training Program. He completed a residency in internal medicine and a fellowship in diabetes, endocrinology and metabolism at UCSF. He is a member of the American Diabetes Association.
