Dr. Gerald Rosen is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy.
Dr. Rosen received his Bachelor of Science in chemistry from Lowell Technological Institute in Lowell, MA, in 1965. He completed his doctorate in organic chemistry at the Clarkson College of Technology in Potsdam, NY, in 1969. In 1979, he graduated from the Duke University School of Law with his JD. Prior to joining the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy in 1988 as chair of the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology, Dr. Rosen served as professor of pharmacology at Duke University. In 1990, he was appointed the Isaac E. Emerson Professor in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the School of Pharmacy.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is unexcelled in imaging the detailed anatomy of the body, but is more limited in its ability to identify physiological dysfunction or pathologies, such as tumors. Electron paramagnetic resonance imaging (EPRI) is an emergent and complementary magnetic resonance modality that can visualize functional pathologies, but that is ill-suited for anatomical imaging. The success of EPRI depends on molecular probes that “light up” specific tissues or cells so that their location and fate may be imaged and tracked. In my lab, EPRI probes are engineered to permit tagging and tracking of specific cell types or enable reporting of physiological information from within the body.
