Research Description: 

Dr. Shieh is a board certified Medical Genetics and Genomics physician. He specializes in evaluating individuals with complex medical genetic conditions. Dr. Shieh's research laboratory aims to understand the genetic basis of diseases, particularly conditions affecting children, by using genomic and molecular tools that integrate novel technology with personalized medicine. He and his team also specialize in exome/genome technologies. Shieh is part of a Center for Excellence at UCSF.

Dr. Shieh received his undergraduate degree from Stanford University and then trained as a physician scientist at the University of Pennsylvania, where he received his M.D. and his Ph.D. He completed residencies and fellowships at the University of Washington/Seattle Children's Hospital, Stanford University, and UCSF. He worked at Stanford and then developed his research program at UCSF.
