UF HEALTH NEUROMEDICINE
Adam and his family will always have history with the University of Florida (UF) Health in Gainesville. After Adam received a diagnosis of inoperable anaplastic astrocytoma by Dr. William Friedman, he became a patient of Dr. Ashley Parham Ghiaseddin at the UF Health Neuromedicine Hospital. Adam’s prognosis qualified him to receive immunotherapy vaccines still in clinical trial stages. These trial vaccines were creations of Dr. Duane Mitchell and his team of researchers, a team Dr. Mitchell brought with him from Duke University.
At UF, Dr. Mitchell and his team are expanding on Mitchell’s trailblazing work of fighting brain cancer with advanced immunotherapy. His research and clinical trials have received international recognition as they’ve been successful in significantly extending their patients’ lives.
Harris Rosen’s generous donation toward UF Health and ReMission Alliance, headed by Dr. Mitchell, brings together world-leading neuro-oncology scientists and physicians and scientist. Speaking about Rosen’s generous donation, UF President Kent Fuchs says, “Thanks to the generosity and support of Harris Rosen and his family, we are able to pursue research breakthroughs that result in real change.”
In honor of Mr. Rosen’s incredible financial and moral support, the suite currently housing UF Health Neuromedicine & Neuro-oncology laboratories was renamed in Adam’s honor. The Adam Michael Rosen Neuromedicine Clinic is housed in the Evelyn F. and Williams L. McKnight Brain Institute.
