Dmitry Rozenberg

Dr. Dmitry Rozenberg is a Respirologist at the University Health Network and is affiliated with the Multi-Organ Transplant Program. He is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Medicine, University of Toronto. He began his studies in Kinesiology and Health Science at York University, which sparked his passion for physical fitness and exercise training. He went on to complete medical school at the University of Ottawa and his Internal Medicine and Respirology Training at the University of Toronto. He received his PhD through the Institute of Medical Science at the University of Toronto, focusing on skeletal muscle dysfunction in lung transplantation with the support of the Eliot Phillipson Clinician-Scientist Training Program and CIHR Vanier Scholarship.

Dr. Rozenberg’s research aims to understand the impact of physical fitness and skeletal muscle dysfunction on daily physical function, quality of life, frailty, health care use, and survival before and after lung transplantation. Dr. Rozenberg is applying novel imaging techniques and non-invasive measures to quantify muscle mass, strength and physical function to gain a greater understanding of the functional impairments experienced by transplant patients and their response to rehabilitation. As a Respirologist with undergraduate training in Kinesiology, Dr. Rozenberg is looking to translate his clinical expertise and passion for exercise training to improve health outcomes in individuals with lung disease and across the multi-organ transplant program.
