Bruce Rosen, director of the MGH Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging, has been elected as a Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors (NAI).
He was chosen for induction, according to a statement by the NAI Fellows Selection Committee, because he has “demonstrated a highly prolific spirit of innovation in creating or facilitating outstanding inventions that have made a tangible impact on quality of life, economic development, and the welfare of society.”
The honor recognizes the enormous contributions Rosen has made to the field of biomedical imaging. For the past 25 years he has led the development of both functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and multimodal imaging, in which functional MR data is combined with information from other modalities. The techniques his group has developed are today used by research centers and hospitals throughout the world.
The NAI Fellows Induction Ceremony will be held on April 5, 2018, at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC. Andrew H. Hirshfeld, U.S. Commissioner for Patents, will provide the keynote address for the ceremony.
