Dr. Sergio D. Rosenzweig is a pediatrician and clinical immunologist with more than 20 years of experience in the field of primary immunodeficiency (PID). Dr. Rosenzweig earned his MD and PhD degrees from the University of Buenos Aires in Argentina in 1989 and 2006, respectively. He completed a pediatric residency in 1993 and a clinical immunology fellowship in 1996, both at the National Pediatric Hospital in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Between 2000 and 2003, Dr. Rosenzweig joined the Immunopathogenesis Unit within the Laboratory of Host Defenses in NIAID under Dr. Steven M. Holland as a Visiting Scientist where he studied the interferon gamma signaling pathway and the molecular basis for genetic susceptibility for mycobacterial diseases. After leaving NIH, and thanks to NIH R01 support, he continued with interferon gamma pathway research in Buenos Aires for the following six years.
In 2009, Dr. Rosenzweig returned to NIH as Chief of the Infectious Diseases Susceptibility Unit within the Laboratory of Host Defenses and Co-Director of the Primary Immunodeficiency Clinic in NIAID. In 2013, he joined the Department of Laboratory Medicine as the Immunology Service Chief.
Dr. Rosenzweig’s interests include the molecular aspects of PID and immunedysregulation diseases, genetic susceptibility to particular microorganisms (e.g., mycobacteria and fungal infections), the role of glycosylation in infectious disease susceptibility, and the participation of Ikaros transcription factor family in PID.
Dr. Rosenzweig has published extensively about PID, genetic susceptibility to particular infectious diseases, and new genetic PID and immunedysregulation diseases. He is an associate editor for many journals in the field of PID and is President-Elect of the Clinical Immunology Society.
