Herodes Guzman, MD, MPH, completed medical school at the UNC School of Medicine, and a pediatric residency at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). He is currently a second-year combined fellow in Clinical Genetics, Medical Biochemical Genetics, and Pediatric Endocrinology at CHOP. He is working with Drs. Rebecca Ganetzky and Shana McCormack to better characterize the pathophysiology of mitochondrial diabetes within a cohort of patients with single large scale mitochondrial DNA deletion syndromes, which may have broader practice implications for patients with more common forms of diabetes. Dr. Guzman plans to continue leading clinical research that helps advance the care he provides to his patients with both common and rare metabolic disorders with a focus on carbohydrate metabolism.
