Dr. Peters is an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine and the Department of Medicine at UCSF.


Many asthma patients respond well to traditional asthma medications including inhaled corticosteroids. However, a significant subgroup of asthmatics (many of whom are older and obese) has severe disease that causes frequent exacerbations and significant disability. Dr. Peters research program focuses on understanding why some patients develop steroid resistant asthma in order to improve treatment options for these patients.


Clinically, Dr. Peters works in the UCSF Severe Asthma Clinic and he is an attending in the UCSF Critical Care Units.
