Session: Plenary Session 4.1 An Arsenic Primer: The ABCs of Arsenic Genealogy

Barry P. Rosen is Distinguished University Professor at the Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine, Florida International University in Miami, Florida and was Associate Dean for Basic Research and Graduate Programs. For 22 years he was Chair and Distinguished Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit, Michigan. He received his B.S. from Trinity College, Connecticut and his M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of Connecticut and was an NIH postdoctoral fellow at Cornell University. For four decades his laboratory has investigated mechanisms of transport and detoxification of transition metals, heavy metals and metalloids in many organisms. He identified and named the ArsR family of metalloregulatory proteins. He made the seminal discovery that aquaglyceroporins, from E. coli GlpF to human AQP9, are transporters that nearly every cell uses to take up As(III). He has published more than 350 papers, reviews and books, and four patents. He is the recipient of numerous awards, including Basil O’Connor Award from the March of Dimes, Maryland Distinguished Young Scientist Award, Josiah Macy, Jr. Faculty Scholar Award and the 2020 FIU Top Scholar Award. He has been continuously funded for four decades by a single grant from NIH, first as an RO1, then a MERIT Award and now as a Maximizing Investigators’ Research Award (MIRA) until 2025, putting it within the top 100 longest continuously-funded NIH grants. He has been on many national and international grant panels, multiple journal editorial boards, and was a reviewer of the FDA policy on arsenic in rice. He was President of the Association of Medical and Graduate Departments of Biochemistry and is an Elected Fellow of both the American Academy for Microbiology (ASM) and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).
