Dr. Christopher Rose is currently Professor in the Department of Medicine at the Université de Montréal and director of the Neuro-Hepato laboratory at the University Hospital Research Center (CRCHUM). Dr. Rose received his PhD (Neuroscience/Biomedical Sciences) from the Université de Montréal in 2000. He pursued post-doctoral studies in Germany (Prof. Kettenmann, Berlin), Spain (Prof. Felipo, Valencia and Prof. Cordoba, Barcelona) and Norway (Dr. Ytrebo, Tromso). He was the recipient of 3 prestigious post-doctoral fellowship awards from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (Germany), Canadian Institute of Health Research (Canada) and the European Association for the Study of the Liver (Europe).
Hepatic encephalopathy, a major neuropsychiatric complication of liver disease, has been the primary focus of Dr. Rose’s translational research for over 25 years, based on a bench-to-bedside concept. Dr. Rose has a vested interest in identifying the pathogenic factors and the pathophysiological pathways involved in the development of cerebral complications associated with liver disease, which ultimately will lead to novel therapeutic approaches, improving the management of patients with liver disease as well as increasing neurological outcome post-liver transplantation.
Dr. Rose’s laboratory is currently funded by the Canadian Institute of Health Research, the Canadian Liver Foundation, and the Québec Health Research Foundation (FRQS). He has published over 77 scientific articles and over 60 students at all levels from throughout the world have trained in his laboratory. Dr. Rose is currently on the editorial board of Journal of Hepatology and Neurochemistry International, a co-chair of the Research Committee of the Canadian Association for the Study of the Liver, and an executive committee member of the International Society for Hepatic Encephalopathy and Nitrogen Metabolism.
