Biography

Matthew J. Barkovich, MD
In September 2019, Dr. Matthew Barkovich will join the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at UCSF as an Assistant Professor in Residence in the Neuroradiology Section.

In 2013, Dr. Matthew Barkovich received his medical degree from UC San Diego School of Medicine. In 2014, he completed a one-year internship at Highland Hospital in Oakland, CA. His four years of training as a Diagnostic Radiology Resident were completed at UCSF in 2018. During his final year of residency, Dr. Barkovich was a Research Fellow in the 2017-2018 NIH T32 Biomedical Imaging Training Program at UCSF where he focused his research on neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) and how imaging abnormalities in NF1 patients correlate with clinical phenotype. In 2019, Dr. Barkovich completed a fellowship in Neuroradiology at UCSF.

Dr. Barkovich was named the 2014 Intern of the Year at Highland Hospital, received the Resident Research grant from the Margulis Society in 2016, and was a recipient of the American Society of Pediatric Neuroradiology Derek Harwood Nash Award in 2018 for his work developing a pediatric hindbrain atlas. His research is focused on using advanced imaging to better understand the molecular pathways that drive neurodevelopmental disorders and normal brain development.
