Günter Weiss, MD

Günter Weiss is Professor of Clinical Immunology and Infectious Diseases in the Department of Internal Medicine at the Medical University Innsbruck.

In his research, he focuses on acquired and genetic  disorders of iron homeostasis including different forms of anemia (with a specific focus on anemia of chronic disease-ACD) and host-pathogen interaction, with a special emphasis on regulatory interactions between iron homeostasis, natural resistance genes and immune function in various infectious diseases with the aim to identify new avenues for successful treatment of specific infections. Professor Weiss' team contributed significantly to our current knowledge on the pathophysiology of ACD and performed numerous studies exploiting novel treatment strategies based on these discoveries. Professor Weiss is the coordinator of the Comprehensive Center for Infection, Immunity and Transplantation (CIIT) the Medical University Innsbruck.
