Pramod K. Mistry, MBBS, PhD, FRCP, FAASLD, cares for adults and children with inherited metabolic liver diseases. He has a particular interest in Gaucher disease, an inherited disorder in which fatty substances build up in certain organs. In addition to his clinical work, Dr. Mistry is director of the Yale Lysosomal Disease Center and the internationally recognized Gaucher Disease Treatment Center.  

Dr. Mistry, who was born in Kenya and grew up in England, has additional clinical interests in such areas as liver disorders of lipid metabolism (such as Neimann Pick disease, cholesterol ester storage disease), alpha 1 antitrypsin deficiency, porphyrias, and undiagnosed liver diseases in the younger patients. Since 2001, he has played a key role in helping to establish Yale Medicine’s adult and pediatric liver transplant programs.

At Yale School of Medicine, he is a professor of both medicine (digestive diseases) and of pediatrics (gastroenterology), and of cellular and molecular physiology. “My research is focused on the discovery of novel treatments and mechanisms of genetic liver diseases, and developing biomarkers to monitor patients,” he says.

He has published extensively in top-rated journals and led numerous international clinical trials for treatment of rare diseases.
