Dr. Rosenberg is an epitome of significance of inter-disciplinary interaction in developing clinical solutions, who after his Medical degree at Johns Hopkins University, obtained doctorate in Biophysics. Now leads a strong interdisciplinary team devoted to find novel solutions to cancer, as the Chief, Surgery Branch at the National Cancer Institute (NCI), MD, USA and as Professor of Surgery at the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences and the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Science.

Instead of two or more specialists’ interaction, making the inter-disciplinary interaction meaningful, we found one passionate scholar in Dr. Rosenberg, walking through the portals of different domains of science by himself, opening a new path to solve an age-old problem is considered worth that this award be bestowed on him, said Dr. Masahiro Katoh, Chairperson, Edogawa NICHE Committee.

In the 2019 Edogawa NICHE Prize Award ceremony at University of Toronto, Canada, Prof Gary Levy, Chair, Awards Committee & Founding Director, CIHR, Transplant program, will honour Dr. Rosenberg with a medal & plaque, whose acceptance speech will be videocasted in NCRM NICHE 2019 in Tokyo, Japan, followed by 2019 Joyce & James Till Travel Grant recipient, PV Sudharsan, a 2012-FCQ elite sharing how FCQ helped in his career (www.j2t2grant.org), and a presentation on Training Program in Regenerative Medicine (www.regenmedcanada.com).

Instituted in 2018, by Jinseisha trust, which owns Edogawa Hospital, Tokyo and Nichi-In Centre for Regenerative Medicine (NCRM), the Edogawa NICHE Prize honours scientists or clinicians whose contributions lead to the development of prevention, diagnosis or treatment of any disease, through an inter-disciplinary interaction. Scholars who attain top scores in the Fujio Cup Quiz since 2006, a part of NCRM NICHE, (www.ncrmniche.org) and gain FCQ Elite status, have a priority to nominate the awardees, which is unique to this prize.
