Dr. Rose completed a BSE in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Michigan in 2006 and went on to attend medical school at Wayne State University. He completed residency in Internal Medicine at Duke University Medical Center in 2013 before coming to the University of Pittsburgh in 2013 for his clinical and research fellowship training in Pulmonary, Allergy and Critical Care Medicine (PACCM). He joined the faculty of the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine in 2016 and was recently promoted to Associate Professor of Medicine and Bioengineering. Dr. Rose obtained his MBA from the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University in 2017 to pursue his entrepreneurial aspirations for drug development in the field of inhalational toxicology. He regularly rounds in medical intensive care unit with a clinical focus on mechanical ventilation, medical toxicology, and telemedicine in critical care.

His research work in carbon monoxide poisoning has contributed to the development of a novel class of antidotal therapies — leading to multiple patents and a spin-out company, Globin Solutions, Inc., which he co-founded in 2017. Dr. Rose currently serves as the President & CEO of Globin Solution. Under his leadership, Globin Solutions raised $5,500,000 in Series A funding in 2018 and was awarded a multi-PI Phase I/II Fast-Track STTR grant from the NIH in 2020. In support of his academic pursuits, he received a K08 award from the NIH, a Parker B Francis Fellowship, a Battlefield Resuscitation for Immediate Stabilization of Combat Casualties from the Department of Defense, a Young Investigator award from the American Heart Association, and a Young Physician-Scientist award from the American Society of Clinical Investigation.

Dr. Rose took on multiple leadership roles in developing innovation and commercialization opportunities for physician-scientists throughout while at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. As Associate Vice Chair of Medicine, Dr. Rose partnered with UPMC Enterprises (the Investment Arm of UPMC health system) and the University of Pittsburgh to enhance innovative research and the commercialization of projects within the Department. He worked with Divisional leaders and Department faculty to connect investigators with the UPMC Enterprises Translational Sciences Portfolio and leverage their expertise and financial resources for commercialization of critical biomedical discoveries. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Rose served as Interim Director of Alternative Resourcing, assisting in Department efforts to explore innovative solutions to potential shortfalls in PPE and critical medical devices. 

Dr. Rose is involved in multiple international academic medical organizations. He is active as a member of the Drug/Device Discovery and Development Committee of the American Thoracic Society (ATS) that fosters the bridge between leaders in respiratory therapeutics, academia, and the device industry. He also has served on multiple Early Career Committees in both the ATS and American Heart Association to enhance the development and professional opportunities of early-stage physician-scientists.
