BMC appoints new surgical oncologist

Jennifer Rosen appointed to general surgery at BMC and assistant professor of surgery at MED.

Jennifer Rosen was recently appointed an assistant professor of surgery at Boston University School of Medicine and to the section of surgical oncology at Boston Medical Center.

“I’m very excited for this opportunity to be involved with such an exciting and diverse faculty and student base,” says Rosen. “I think it’s a wonderful base to do research.” Rosen’s clinical practice focuses on surgical oncology, with a concentration in endocrine and gastrointestinal surgery. Her research interests include thyroid cancer, novel three-dimensional models of cancer, and the genetics of treatment-resistant cancers.
