Chivukula, MD, PhD is an Instructor in Medicine at Harvard Medical School, a Principal Investigator in the Center for Genomic Medicine, and an attending physician in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at Massachusetts General HospitalPrior to coming to Mass General for residency and fellowship training, he was an undergraduate and MD/PhD student at Johns Hopkins University. His doctoral dissertation focused on the molecular physiology of microRNAs and his postdoctoral work at the Whitehead Instititute for Biomedical Research focused on cell biology and biochemistry of organelles.

As a physician-scientist, Dr. Chivukula's laboratory interests center on rare genetic disorders which affect specialized subcellular organelles to cause human disease.  His recent and ongoing work has focused on Mendelian disorders of the lung which interfere with airway mucociliary clearance and cause pulmonary fibrosis. His work has been recognized by a Michael A.
