Antony Rosen, MB ChB, BSc(Hons)

Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine


Dr. Antony Rosen, MB ChB, BSc(Hons), is the Mary Betty Stevens Professor of Medicine, Pathology and Cell Biology, Vice Dean for Research at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, and Co-Director of inHealth, the Johns Hopkins program in precision medicine and individualized health. He served as the Director of the Division of Rheumatology from 2002- 2022, overseeing a substantial expansion of the Division’s clinical and research capabilities.

Dr. Rosen received his medical degree from the University of Cape Town in South Africa in 1984. After completing his internship in Medicine and Surgery, he pursued postdoctoral studies in Immunology at the Rockefeller University in New York (1987-1990). Drawn by a desire for a deeper understanding of human inflammatory diseases, he returned to clinical medicine and was an Osler resident and rheumatology fellow at Johns Hopkins Hospital (1990-1994). He subsequently joined the faculty at Johns Hopkins in 1995 and rose to the rank of Professor in 2002.

Dr. Rosen’s research focuses on autoimmunity in the rheumatic diseases, including scleroderma, Sjogren’s syndrome, and myositis, using subgroups of patients with distinct phenotypes, trajectories, and specific autoimmune responses to define molecular mechanisms. For a number of years, Dr. Rosen and his collaborators have been investigating how the immunological response to cancer may trigger and shape autoimmunity.

For many years, Dr. Antony Rosen was a funded investigator of the Scleroderma Research Foundation (“SRF”). He currently serves on the Scientific Advisory Board of the SRF.
