Episodes in which Randy Rosier, M.D., Ph.D. appears

Professor of Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation and Biochemistry and Biophysics University of Rochester Medical Center
Rochester, NY

Dr. Rosier received an MS in biophysics from the University of Rochester in 1977, MD degree in 1978, and PhD in biophysics in 1979.  After his Orthopaedic training at the University of Iowa, Dr. Rosier returned to Rochester to join the faculty of the Department of Orthopaedics and create an Orthopaedic Oncology service.  In addition, Dr. Rosier established a molecular biology research program in the area of growth factor regulation of cartilage development and regeneration, and an Osteoporosis Center for the treatment of metabolic bone diseases.

In 2000, Dr. Rosier became Chairman of the Department of Orthopaedics, and established the Center for Musculoskeletal Research which he directed.  The Orthopaedic research program of the Center, which focuses on bone and cartilage healing and regeneration, arthritis and gene therapy,  tissue engineering, osteoporosis, and treatments for implant loosening  and cancer bone metastasis, has become ranked as the number one NIH funded Orthopaedic research program in the United States.  In March of 2007, Dr. Rosier discontinued his Departmental administrative roles to devote more time to directing a new Center of Translational Research, his ongoing research programs in osteoarthritis and skeletal lead toxicity, and his clinical practice of orthopaedic oncology.

Dr. Rosier serves as a director of the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgeons, a member of the board of directors of the Orthopaedic Research Society and has been a member of the University of Rochester Medical Center Board, and the Advisory Council of the National Institute of Arthritis, Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases.  He has chaired the Education and Critical Issues Committees of the American Orthopaedic Association, and the Committee on Biological Implants of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.  He has authored over 140 peer reviewed publications, 30 book chapters, and 275 published abstracts on research topics, with a focus on  molecular biology of skeletal tissues, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, orthopaedic oncology, and clinician-scientist development.
