Research Interest
Dr. Rose's research interests focus on discovering and developing new human therapeutics. His group is working to identify and develop a novel carbon monoxide poisoning antidote. They are also characterizing the mechanisms of severe CO poisoning from a molecular basis and in novel animal models. Dr. Rose's research focuses on studying the mitochondrial effects of carbon monoxide and our ability to reverse the toxicity of carbon monoxide in vitro. He is interested in the drug development process, including nonclinical toxicology, pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic assessment, drug manufacturing and clinical study design.
Dr Rose also focuses on academic commercialization and innovation. Together with Drs Mark Gladwin and Jesus Tejero, he co-founded Globin Solutions Inc. ( He is co-inventor on five patents and patent applications.
Clinical Interest
Dr. Rose's clinical interests are in the management and care of critically ill patients. He rounds at UPMC Presbyterian, UPMC Montefiore, UPMC East, UPMC McKeesport and the Pittsburgh VA Medical Center. He has a particular interest in critical illness toxicology and inhalational lung disorders.
Educational Interest
Dr. Rose enjoys teaching and training medical students, residents and fellows in their clinical rotations in the Medical Intensive Care Unit.
