Roseman University of Health Sciences
Message from Dr. Fiscus, Assoc. Dean for Research & Professor of BioMedical Sciences in Roseman's new College of Medicine and Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences in the College of Pharmacy
Welcome to Research at Roseman University of Health Sciences. The University has assembled outstanding teams of world-class researchers focusing on health issues that have a tremendous impact on populations in the U.S. and beyond, including cutting-edge medical research of Type-1 and Type-2 Diabetes, Obesity, many forms of Cancer (Breast Cancer, Colon Cancer, Leukemia & Lymphoma, Lung Cancer, Melanoma, Mesothelioma, Ovarian Cancer, Pancreatic Cancer and Prostate Cancer), Alzheimer’s and Parkinson's Disease, Cardiovascular Diseases, Stem Cells in Regenerative Medicine, Dental Medicine Research, Nursing Research and special 15-year experience with cutting-edge research in Pharmaceutical Practice & Pharmaceutical Sciences, with established expertise in research of the molecular mechanisms & development of new therapies for Sustance Abuse & Mental Depression. Our researchers have set up the most advanced medical research instrumentation currently available within this region of the U.S. [e.g. CARS / 4-Laser (2-Photon-plus-2-Photon) Microscopy for combining 3-D micro-imaging with micro chemical analysis, NanoPro 100 & NanoPro 1000 ("Advanced Nano-Proteomics" based on exquisitely-sensitive Capillary Electrophoresis), TIRF / ultrasensitive Confocal Microscopy, and Roseman's newly Patented ultrasensitive Near-Infra-Red Fluorescence (NIRF)-based Technology for accurately quantifying the Catalytic / Kinase Activity of any Protein Kinase (518 in the human genome), used for identifying new biomarkers for diagnosing diseases and developing new, more effective therapeutic agents].
We have built collaborations with renowned researchers from around the globe (including recipient of Nobel Prize in Physiology/Medicine) to make important discoveries that will lead to novel diagnostic tools (e.g. new biomarkers for early diagnosis of Alzheimer's & Parkinson's disease, various cancers and Type-1 & Type-2 diabetes) and discovering new ways of preventing and treating these diseases.
We invite you to learn more about our world-class research teams, their state-of-the-art medical research instrumentation, and their groundbreaking research programs. Click on the specific Research Center / Program at Roseman University, listed on the left.
Ronald R. Fiscus, Ph.D.
Assoc. Dean for Research & Professor of BioMedical Sciences (Molecular Pathology & Molecular Pharmacology), College of Medicine, Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences, College of Pharmacy, Director of Diabetes & Obesity Research Center, Director of Alzheimer's & Parkinson's Diseases Research Center, Member of Cancer Research Center, all at Roseman University.
(Previously, Dr. Fiscus was a Leading Scientist at Stanford University Medical School, working as a Staff Pharmacologist / Senior Postdoc in the lab of Dr. F. Murad. Dr. Fiscus' research at Stanford Medical School contributed to the 1998 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine on "Nitric Oxide ( NO ) Cell-Signaling Mechanism [ NO / cyclic GMP / protein kinase G ( PKG ) ] & Pharmacology / Physiology of NO in Regulating the Cardiovascular ( CV ) System, Protecting Against Hypertension & Other CV Diseases".
