Juan Rosai


Juan Rosai, M.D. (born in August 1940) is an Italian-born American physician who has contributed to clinical research in the subspecialty of surgical pathology. He is the principal author and editor of a major textbook in that field, and he has characterized novel medical conditions such as Rosai-Dorfman disease and the desmoplastic small round cell tumor. Rosai is also well-known because of his role as mentor and teacher to many American surgical pathologists.

Dr. Rosai has maintained ties to Italy, his home country, throughout his life. In 1982–1983 he spent a sabbatical year at the University of Florence and the University of Bologna. He chose to move permanently back to Italy in 2000, as Chairman of the Department of Anatomic Pathology at the Istituto Nazionale Dei Tumori (National Cancer Institute) in Milan, Italy. In 2005, he became the Director of the Center for Oncologic Pathology Consultations at the Centro Diagnostico Italiano (C.D.I.) in Milan. Currently, Rosai still has academic connections to the United States, as Adjunct Professor of Pathology at the Weill Cornell Medical College of Cornell University; Visiting Professor of Pathology at Harvard University and Massachusetts General Hospital; and Senior Pathologist at Genzyme Genetics Corporation, New York, NY.

In appreciation for his contributions to pathology, Rosai has received formal recognition from academic institutions around the world, as follows:
