Area of Interest

Rosenman’s area of research interest is in high performance computing in radiation cancer treatment and real-time display of 3d radiation doses. Rosenman, along with Mark Socinski from Medical Oncology and Frank Detterbeck from Thoracic Surgery, has continued the development of a highly successful multidisciplinary Thoracic Oncology program.

The combined efforts of these doctors have placed new patients onto UNC Lineberger, Cooperative Group, or pharmaceutical company sponsored studies. This has provided a comprehensive clinical and research base for these important and common malignancies.

As a result of this group’s work, the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center is currently serving as the lead institution for multi-center Phase III studies in small cell and non-small cell lung cancer. The non-small cell study will address the important question of optimal duration of therapy for patients with metastatic disease by asking whether or not continued therapy until progression is a more effective strategy than stopping treatment after an initial four cycle course of treatment.

This program has also taken the lead in developing an active relationship with Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, N.C. This clinical research affiliation has led to enhanced patient accrual onto several active lung cancer studies, which Drs. Socinski and Rosenman are chairing. Work by Rosenman in the development of conformal radiotherapy techniques has been crucial in developing the affiliation with investigators at the Carolinas Medical Center for lung cancer studies
