Bio

Dr. Amber Hildreth is a pediatric gastroenterologist and transplant hepatologist at Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego and is an assistant clinical professor at the University of California San Diego. She is triple certified by the American Board of Pediatrics, with board certifications in Pediatrics, Pediatric Gastroenterology, and Pediatric Transplant Hepatology.

Dr. Hildreth's clinical interests include a wide variety of pediatric liver disease including neonatal cholestasis, autoimmune hepatitis, genetic/metabolic liver disease, portal hypertension, and infectious hepatitis as well as care for pediatric patients before and after liver transplant.

She is a clinician scientist at the Rady Children's Institute for Genomic Medicine where her research focuses on rapid whole-genome sequencing in children with liver disease. She is also a member of multiple national societies and research groups aimed at improving outcomes in pediatric liver disease and liver transplant.
