Research Interests

Respiratory Viral Infections: Interferon, Antivirals and Immunity

Dr. Greenberg has been involved in the impact of respiratory viral infections in asthmatic and COPD patients. In addition, he has been defining the role of non-typeable Hemophilus influenzae (NTHi) in COPD patients as a major cause of exacerbations. These studies have led to a rethinking of the relative importance of viruses such as rhinoviruses and parainfluenzaviruses in causing exacerbations.
