UCSF & ImmunoX
Jeroen Roose is a tenured Principal Investigator and Vice Chair of Anatomy at the University of California, San Francisco. He is also a co-founder of UCSF's Bakar ImmunoX Immunology Program. During his PhD, he trained with Professor Hans Clevers and investigated Wnt signaling in cancer. His postdoctoral training with Professor Arthur Weiss focused on Ras signaling in T lymphocytes. The Roose lab focuses on understanding cell fate decisions driven by cell-cell interactions and signaling pathways, in the context of cancer, autoimmune diseases, and COVID-19. By taking a collaborative approach working with biophysicists, computational engineers, geneticists, and many clinicians, the Roose research team spans the gamut from fundamental to pre-clinical science. Dr. Roose also runs an organoid disease to biology unit connected to UCSF's CoLabs. There is a rich training environment for staff, students, postdocs, and fellows in the established infrastructure of the Roose lab and the programs it is connected to. Jeroen Roose is a recipient of multiple grants and awards including support from the NIH, foundations, philanthropy, and industry. Dr. Roose received UCSF's 2013 Postdoctoral Fellow Mentor Award. He is the director of the Graduate School Cell Biology course and Medical School Histology course. Dr. Roose serves as an ad hoc reviewer for multiple journals including Science, Nature, Immunity, Science Signaling, and Nature Immunology. Dr. Roose is also a co-founder of Seal Biosciences, Inc and has an advisory function for the Mark Foundation for Cancer Research.
