Dr. Rosenberg is an epitome of significance of inter-disciplinary interaction in developing clinical solutions, who after his Medical degree at Johns Hopkins University, obtained doctorate in Biophysics. Now leads a strong interdisciplinary team devoted to find novel solutions to cancer, as the Chief, Surgery Branch at the National Cancer Institute (NCI), MD, USA and as Professor of Surgery at the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences and the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Science.
Instead of two or more specialists’ interaction, making the inter-disciplinary interaction meaningful, we found one passionate scholar in Dr. Rosenberg, walking through the portals of different domains of science by himself, opening a new path to solve an age-old problem is considered worth that this award be bestowed on him, said Dr. Masahiro Katoh, Chairperson, Edogawa NICHE Committee.
