“Just as we had the digital revolution in the last century, we are having a biological sciences revolution this century,” posits Caltech alumnus and board chair emeritus Benjamin M. (Ben) Rosen (BS ’54), philanthropist and longtime chairman of Compaq Computer Corporation. “And Caltech is the place to be.”

The Donna and Benjamin M. Rosen Bioengineering Center was established in 2008 with a generous gift from Donna and Benjamin (BS ’54) Rosen through the Benjamin M. Rosen Family Foundation of New York. The Rosen Center uses a variety of mechanisms and programs to accomplish its mission of encouraging intensive, fruitful collaborations between bioengineering researchers. Equally important is the Rosen Center's role in inspiring young scientists with engaging and unique educational opportunities. Just as bioengineering encompasses a wide variety of scientific disciplines, the Rosen Center brings together faculty members, staff scientists, postdocs, and graduate and undergraduate students from multiple Divisions across campus to envision the future of bioengineering at Caltech.
