Biography

Andreas Moraitis, M.D., is Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine in the Division of Metabolism, Endocrinology & Diabetes (MEND). Dr. Moraitis received his medical degree from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece. Following residency training in internal medicine, he completed fellowship training in adult and reproductive endocrinology at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). For two years, he was the lead associate investigator in the adrenal protocol at the NIH working on the development of novel treatments for the adrenal disorders, the genetics of the adrenal tumors and the cardiovascular, metabolic, kidney and bone abnormalities associated with adrenal hormonal hyper-secretion syndromes, especially aldosterone and cortisol excess syndromes. He is an associate (extramural) investigator in the adrenal protocols of the National Institutes of Health. Dr. Moraitis’s area of greatest expertise is in the management of adrenal disorders, especially causes and treatment of hyper- or hypo-secretion of adrenal cortex hormones and their associated disorders. He is specialized in the management of hypertension, lipid, and reproductive abnormalities associated with adrenal disorders. 

Dr. Moraitis’s research has focused on adrenal hormone synthesis and the genetic causes of familial forms of hypertension. He is specifically interested in understanding how the hormones involved in hypertension are regulated, which specific genetic abnormalities are associated with the development of hypertension, and novel diagnostic techniques and treatments for adrenal disorders.
