Pediatric Infectious Disease
Dr. Weinberg’s laboratory studies interactions between host immune responses and adenoviruses, which are important causes of respiratory infections. Adenovirus infections can be particularly devastating in immunocompromised patients often resulting in rapidly disseminated infection and death. Dr. Weinberg’s research is funded by the National Institutes of Health and is focused on defining ways in which the immune system controls viral infection, hoping to identify novel ways to more effectively treat patients with disease caused by adenoviruses and other viruses.
Dr. Weinberg has been a member of the University of Michigan faculty in the Department of Pediatrics since 2003. He has held a joint appointment in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology since 2006. He is a member of many national organizations such as the Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society, Infectious Diseases Society of America, Society for Pediatric Research, and the American Society for Virology. He is active in patient care and basic science research, and he teaches graduate students, medical students, residents in Pediatrics, and fellows in Pediatric Infectious Diseases. When he is not at work, Dr. Weinberg enjoys spending time outside with his family in Ann Arbor. He is an avid cyclist and soccer player.
