"Basic research on the world's deadly diseases is what will ultimately save lives and create more stable societies around the world."

"I don’t dream – I plan ahead," said Seattle BioMed supporter Larry Roseman. "I was raised in the Great Depression, so tenacity, innovation and thrift are ways of life for me. All my life I've made and maintained five-year plans."
Ever since entering the army in World War II, Roseman has worked for the protection of the United States. After finishing his engineering degree, he entered the aerospace field and developed a finite element analysis technique for large structures at Boeing.
"Seattle BioMed’s research is similar to Boeing Class 2 research," said Roseman. "It’s basic research, and it’s a slow, lengthy process. But that is what it takes to advance our society."
Roseman calls himself a patriot, and one who believes in working on things that are essential to the well-being of this country. "That includes infectious disease research" he said. "Basic research on the world's deadliest diseases is what will ultimately save lives and create more stable societies around the world."
