The goals of Dr. Timothy Weaver's work are to understand the structural basis for surfactant protein function and to identify the roles of these proteins in lung development and postnatal pulmonary physiology. These goals are achieved by expressing mutated/deleted surfactant protein transgenes in knockout mice and evaluating pathophysiologic changes associated with a specific mutation or loss of functional domain.

Dr. Weaver is a recipient of the prestigious MERIT award from the National Institutes of Health, NIH, and his research is supported by multiple grants from the NIH.
