Gregory Rose, Professor and Neurobiologist at Southern Illinois University, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in neurobiology.

It was during his undergraduate studies where Dr. Rose was introduced to the field of neurobiology and how rewarding the work could be. He was presented with the opportunity to conduct research with Gary Lynch, who was a leading professional in terms of revealing how the brain changes and responds to learning events. Dr. Rose was called to this work and eventually transitioned into academia himself. He recalls the highlight of his career thus far has been discovering the way to generate changes in the strength of connections in the brain using stimuli similar to what the brain naturally uses. Looking toward the future, Dr. Rose sees himself possibly retiring but feels he will still have his sleeves rolled up working towards solutions for Alzheimer’s disease and other clinical problems.

Dr. Rose has taught at Southern Illinois University since 2009. Upon joining the faculty, he brought decades of experience as a leader and researcher at numerous labs and facilities such as being the Director of Neuroscience Discovery Biology as Bristol-Myers Squibb Company and the Director of Functional Neuroscience at the Memory Pharmaceuticals Corporation. In his own academic pursuits, he first earned a Bachelor of Science from the University of California, Irvine, cum laude in 1975 and continued at the institution to receive a PhD in psychology in 1980. He supplemented this work as a postdoctoral fellow at the Friedrich Miescher Laboratory at the Max-Planck-Institute and as a fellow with the Department of Pharmacology with the Health Science Center at the University of Chicago.
