Meredith Russell is a pediatric nurse practitioner whose focus is endocrinology, conditions related to endocrine glands and the hormones they produce. She evaluates, diagnoses, treats and monitors acutely and chronically ill infants, children, adolescents and young adults who have these kinds of disorders. As part of a multidisciplinary team, she also helped launch the UCSF Child and Adolescent Gender Center Clinic in 2012, and she currently serves as the clinic's nursing director.

In addition, Russell provides comprehensive, coordinated medical care and advocacy services for the Weight Assessment for Teen and Child Health Clinic, Disorders of Sexual Development Clinic and children's neuro-oncology specialty program. In research, she is interested in exploring novel treatments for children with growth hormone deficiency and studying the impact of early medical treatment in transgender youth.

Russell earned a master's degree in nursing at UCSF, completing the advanced practice pediatric acute care nurse practitioner program. She is a member of the Endocrine Society and National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners.
