BIO

Fuad Elkhoury was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. He completed his undergraduate studies at UCLA, where he earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Molecular, Cell, and Developmental Biology. He graduated with summa cum laude and departmental honors and was inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa Honors Society.

He earned his medical degree from UCSD School of Medicine, where he was awarded an NIH Research Grant to investigate the role of epigenetics in neuronal adaptation to hypoxia.

As a Urology resident at UCLA, Fuad hopes to continue pursuing his interest in basic and clinical research as he progresses in his surgical training.
