Professional History

Jonathan Mansbach, MD, MPH graduated from Haverford College, taught biology and chemistry for one year, and then went to Duke Medical School. He has been at Boston Children’s ever since -- as a resident, fellow, and now faculty. His fellowship was a combined program in adolescent and hospitalist medicine.  After fellowship, he obtained a Masters of Public Health from the Harvard School of Public Health. Currently, he spends much of his time conducting translational research examining bronchiolitis, respiratory viruses, the respiratory microbiome, and the transition from bronchiolitis to asthma. He has had grant funding from foundations and the NIH to investigate these areas.
