Arye Rosen (M ’77, SM ’80, F ’92) received the Masters degree in engineering from Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD, the M.Sc. degree in physiology from Jefferson Medical College, Philadelphia, PA, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Drexel University, Philadelphia, PA. Dr. Rosen, who has been involved in research and development of microwave/millimeter-wave devices and circuits, microwave optical interaction, high-power semiconductor lasers and the utilization of energies for application in therapeutic medicine for the past 40 years, currently holds an appointment as Academy Professor of Biomedical and Electrical Engineering in the School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems and Associate Vice Provost for Strategic Initiatives at Drexel University, Philadelphia, PA. He also holds the title of Associate in Medicine at Jefferson Medical College, where he has been engaged in research in the Division of Cardiology since 1970. He has authored more than 200 technical papers, co-edited two books: High-Power Optically Activated Solid-State Switches (Norwood, MA: Artech House, 1993), and New Frontiers in Medical Device Technology (New York: Wiley, 1995), co-authored the book entitled, RF/Microwave Interaction with Biological Tissues (New Jersey: Wiley 2006), and authored six book-chapters in the field of engineering and medicine. He holds over 60 U.S. patents in the fields of engineering and medicine.
Dr. Rosen is an elected Member of the National Academy of Engineering, “For contributions to microwave and laser technologies and the medical applications of these technologies.” (2002). He is an Elected Member of The Franklin Institute’s Committee on Science and the Arts (2003), and a Member of the John Scott Award Advisory Committee, City of Philadelphia Board of Directors of City Trusts (2004). He is a Life Fellow of IEEE, elected in 1992 “For innovation in semiconductor devices and circuits for use in microwave systems and for microwave applications to medicine.” He was IEEE Distinguished Microwave Lecturer from 1997 to 2000, during which time he has presented his and the work of others in the U.S., Japan, Europe and the Middle East. He is the recipient of numerous awards, including the IEEE MTTS Microwave Career Award (May 2010), the IEEE Third Millennium Medal (January 2000) and an IEEE Microwave Application Award (June 2000). He was also the recipient of a 1989 IEEE Region One Award and a 1997 Drexel University College of Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, Distinguished Alumni Award.
