Dr. John Rose received a B.A. in Biology from Johns Hopkins University and an MD from the University of Maryland. He then completed a residency in Neurology at the University Maryland, where he was Chief Resident in 1978-1979. He also completed a research fellowship at the NIH in Neuromuscular Disease and subsequently joined the NIH as a medical staff fellow in Neuroimmunology. After completing Neuroimmunology Fellowship at the National Institutes of Health, he became a member of the Department of Neurology at the University of Utah and the neurology staff at the VA Medical Center June 1985. At the University of Utah his efforts have been centered on the Multiple Sclerosis Clinic. He retired as Chief of Neurology at the VASLCHCS in 2015 and now works at the VA under the Research Service. He is presently Division Director for Neuroimmunology and Neurovirology and Professor of Neurology. He maintains research interests at both institutions. The research efforts have been most rewarding. He has been fortunate to have outstanding colleagues at the University of Utah and the VA. As a result they are able to work on extremely interesting projects ranging from basic science in models of MS to translational research with experimental imaging and therapeutics in MS patients.
