Crystal Kamilaris, M.D., is a clinician investigator in endocrine hypertension and adrenocortical disease, specializing in internal medicine and adult endocrinology. She serves as a staff clinician for NICHD as well as co-chief of the internal medicine, endocrinology, and genetics inpatient ward and outpatient endocrinology clinic, and as faculty for the NIH Inter-Institute Endocrinology Training Program (IETP). She completed her medical school training at the University of Patras School of Health Sciences in Greece. She did her residency in internal medicine at the University of Connecticut, where she completed the clinician educator track, and her fellowship training in adult endocrinology, diabetes, and metabolism in the IETP, with a clinical and research focus on endocrine hypertension, adrenocortical tumors, pituitary disease, and multiple endocrine neoplasia. She is board certified in internal medicine and endocrinology, diabetes, and metabolism by the American Board of Internal Medicine.

Dr. Kamilaris began working with NICHD in 2017, as an associate investigator in the laboratory of Dr. Constantine Stratakis, on several adrenal- and genetic-related natural history protocols to understand the pathophysiology and genetics of adrenal and pituitary tumors, with a special focus on primary aldosteronism in African Americans including: Clinical and Molecular Characteristics of Primary Aldosteronism in Blacks (18-CH-0031), Clinical and Molecular Analysis of ACTH-Independent Steroid Hormone Production in Adrenocortical Tissue (00-CH-0160), Definition of the Genotype and Clinical Phenotype of Primary Pigmented Nodular Adrenocortical Disease (PPNAD), Carney Complex, Peutz-Jeghers Syndrome, and Related Conditions (95-CH-0059), Evaluation of Adults with Endocrine-Related Conditions (16-CH-0125), and A Clinical and Genetic Investigation of Pituitary and Hypothalamic Tumors and Related Disorders (97-CH-0076).
