Dr. Weiss is an Associate Professor of Infectious Diseases and Director of Antibiotic Resistance Center at Emory University, where he was named the Posdoc Mentor of the Year in 2016. He received his PhD degree in Microbiology from New York University in 2004. Working under Dr. Arturo Zychlinsky, he studied how Toll-like Receptors work together to fight bacterial infections. He completed his postdoctoral training at Stanford University under Drs. Stanley Falkow and Denise Monack, studying virulence mechanisms of Francisella and the role of the inflammasome in host defense. He was the recipient of a three year postdoctoral fellowship from the Giannini Family Foundation. His lab studies the interaction of bacterial pathogens with the host, focusing on Francisella tularensis, a potential bioweapon, and Acinetobacter baumannii, a highly antibiotic-resistant, hospital-acquired pathogen.
