The primary focus of the Rosen laboratory research is the genetic regulation of insulin-like growth factor relative to skeletal metabolism and the relationship between marrow adipogenesis and osteoblastogenesis. The Clinical and Translational Laboratory Services (CTRLS), a fee for service laboratory established by Dr Rosen, provides laboratory testing for biomarkers of bone and fat metabolism and disease in human and murine samples. Testing is performed either by manual immunoassay (ELISA), using commercially available kits, or on the ISYS Autoanalyzer (Immunodiagnostics Systems). The laboratory is managed by Anne Breggia, PhD and staffed by three research technologists with more than 50 years of combined experience in laboratory testing, assay development and validation.
