Alexander (Alex) Gupta, MD is a general surgery resident in the University of California, San Francisco Department of Surgery. He completed his undergraduate training at Southern Methodist University studying Electrical Engineering with a specialization in Biomedical Engineering. He attended medical school at the University of Texas Medical Branch. He is currently in his chief year of residency and is an administrative chief resident.

His clinical interests include abdominal organ transplantation. After he graduates residency, he will be staying at UCSF for abdominal transplant surgery fellowship. His research interests are based in mechanisms of immune tolerance. He continues to work with Dr. James Gardner, a UCSF transplant surgeon and basic immunologist, studying the fundamental biology of extrathymic Aire-expressing cells as they relate to peripheral tolerance induction.
