Research Interests:
Determining factors that predict successful and cost-effective long-term weight loss, assessing the neurobiopsychosocial adaptations that occur with weight loss, evaluating the impact of weight loss on clinical outcomes including diabetes, pain, reproductive, maternal and fetal health, and health-related quality-of-life, and examining the impact of bringing the "community" to the lifestyle intervention to expand the outreach of the intervention into the at-risk communities.

Research Projects:
Rothberg is the Medical Director of REWIND - a virtual program of intensive behavioral therapy to prevent and "defeat" type 2 diabetes

Rothberg has a multi-investigator NIH funded study examining preconception weight loss on molecular outcomes and fetal/ infant adiposity and growth.

Rothberg has collaborators in several disciplines across campus including in the Departments of Pharmacology studying drug pharmacodynamics and kinetics in individuals with obesity and diabetes before and after weight loss to develop precision drug dosing model, in Kinesiology looking at metabolic adaptations in response to high intensity interval training in individuals with obesity, with Anesthesiology looking at the intersection of pain and obesity.

Rothberg has collaborations with investigators nationally including with neuroscientists at Wayne State University investigating "bottom up" emotional processes and "top down" cognitive control in individuals who maintain or regain weight after weight loss.

Rothberg collaborates with physician scientists in diabetes and obesity internationally on diabetes, obesity, and fertility.
