Dr. Eric Bomberg is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics and Core Faculty Member for the Center for Pediatric Obesity Medicine at the University of Minnesota Medical School. He earned his Bachelors of Arts degree from the University of California at Berkeley and his Medical Degree from the University of Southern California. He then completed a residency in Medicine/Pediatrics at the University of Minnesota, followed by fellowships in both Adult Endocrinology and Pediatric Endocrinology at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF). In addition, he completed a Masters in Clinical Research at UCSF.
Dr. Bomberg is board certified by the American Board of Pediatrics and the American Board of Internal Medicine, and has sub-specialty certification in Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism from the American Board of Internal Medicine. His initial interest in pediatric obesity was motivated by his personal struggle with this disease and subsequent 90-pound weight loss during adolescence. His early research focused on the actions of neuropeptides and their effects on feeding and metabolism, while his later research has focused on the use of anti-obesity pharmacotherapy in children and adolescents with pediatric obesity. In addition, he has become interested in precision medicine approaches for the treatment of pediatric obesity, with a specific focus on discovering person-specific characteristics predicting response to anti-obesity interventions.
