About Me

Dr. Ugarte is an assistant professor of medicine at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. He received his medical degree from the University of Virginia in Charlottesville in 1995 and completed his residency training in internal medicine at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. Later, Dr. Ugarte completed fellowship training in nephrology and transplant nephrology at Johns Hopkins University.

Dr. Ugarte's clinical research interests have included the use of anti-rejection Thymoglobulin induction, the use of deceased donor kidney transplants from donors with acute kidney injury and systemic inflammation as a risk factor for graft failure. His more recent interest includes understanding reasons for early kidney failure among African American kidney transplant recipients, with a focus on a particular kind of immune rejection known as chronic T-cell mediated rejection and working with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to look at possible genetic predispositions. Dr. Ugarte received his master's degree in health science from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
