Special Interests

Research Interests

The glucocorticoid receptor is one of the most important therapeutic targets for the treatment of inflammatory disorders of the lung such as asthma. My laboratory investigates two aspects of glucocorticoid receptor signaling. First, we are studying the basic molecular mechanisms whereby glucocorticoids repress the expression of inflammatory genes in the airway. Second, we are investigating how various non-inflammatory genes that are regulated by glucocorticoids alter lung function. By defining new mechanisms of glucocorticoid action we ultimately seek to discover new targets for asthma therapeutics.

Patient Ratings

The Patient Rating score is an average of all responses to care provider related questions on our independent rating system, the Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. This survey is about the patient care experience and does not address crucial characteristics like medical decision-making, prescribing the best therapy, and patient outcomes.

Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the best score. Learn more about our patient satisfaction survey.

Great doctor.

National Jewish Health PatientJune, 2020
it's was nice to have someone actually listen to my concerns

National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2020
By my final day of testing, my care provider shared his perceptions and intuitions in a way that helped me piece together all the bits and pieces of the week. His conversation was extremely helpful to me.

National Jewish Health PatientMay, 2020
Outstanding service, great doctor-patient bond established.

National Jewish Health PatientApril, 2020
*Dr. Gerber did a great job working w/me, listening to my concerns & walking thru our care plan.

National Jewish Health PatientFebruary, 2020
This is absolutely the best experience I have ever had at any health care facility.

National Jewish Health PatientOctober, 2019
NJH is great! Loved Dr. Gerber!!! No other pulmonologist was able to solve my problem of ten years. I have told everyone about NJH and how well run it is let alone a doctor who was actually able to help me. I am so grateful to you.

National Jewish Health PatientJune, 2019
I am so impressed with NJH & Dr. Gerber. I see why people come from all around the world to NJH. I've waited years to get in (insurance issues) and I think it will be worth the wait. I have high hopes Dr. Gerber will be the one to find out what's wrong with me and know how to treat it.

National Jewish Health PatientJune, 2019
Dr. Gerber is my favorite physician. He listens and takes the time to evaluate all concerns I have. Excellent doctor.

National Jewish Health PatientJanuary, 2019
Dr Gerber was very concerned, I felt my medical concerns were dealt with. Prior doctors have given very little thought or concern to testing and finding solution's . So thankful to find such genuine care . Very professional.
