Dr. J. Bart Rose joined the faculty of the UAB Department of Surgery Division of Surgical Oncology in 2017. He has a combined research and clinical appointment. He has been engaged in scientific research for fifteen years. Over this time he contributed to scientific knowledge in the fields of molecular genetics, enzymology, oncologic biomarkers, and clinical outcomes. His focus since entering the field of surgery has been on biomarker research and mechanisms of cancer development in liver, pancreas, and bile ducts cancers (specifically neuroendocrine tumors). He has presented on novel uses of established biomarkers in pancreatic cancer, was the first to report on the clinical utility of a bile based biomarker in patients with bile duct cancer (cholangiocarcinoma), and is currently investigating new ways to treat neuroendocrine tumors of the pancreas and GI tract.

He is originally from a small logging town in Northern California, but has enjoyed his time during training in the Midwest and Pacific Northwest. He is excited to explore everything Alabama has to offer with his wife and two daughters. His hobbies include working on classic cars, hiking, and has recently started fly fishing.
