Gregory Ku


Diabetes researcher and poor golfer

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.

    Dr Ku is a great doctor. He is easy to talk to and explains things so they're easy to understand. I could have transferred care back to my primary doctor because I'm doing well but prefer to stay with Dr Ku even though I have to pay more for the office visits.
