Dr. Bose has held faculty positions at Yale University and New York University School of Medicine. He is currently Director of Stroke Research at Lenox Hill Hospital, New York. Dr Bose’s research interests are in the development of novel, minimally invasive devices for the treatment and prevention of stroke. He was Founder and Chairman of Smart Therapeutics, a start up medical device company that developed the first intra-cranial stent for the treatment of aneurysms and subsequently the first stent designed for the prevention of ischemic stroke. In 2002, Smart Therapeutics merged with Boston Scientific Corporation. He is currently Founder and Chairman of Penumbra Inc., a startup medical device company focused on the emergent treatment of acute ischemic stroke.
In 1994 Dr. Bose co-founded Bose Pacia Gallery in New York with Ms. Shumita Bose and Dr. Steven Pacia.
Bose Pacia was the first gallery in the West specializing in contemporary art from South Asia. During the past decade Bose Pacia has held over 50 exhibitions and is internationally regarded as one of the preeminent galleries promoting the South Asian avant-garde.
Visual artists from South Asia work within a wholly unique space - one that is informed by a multitude of cultures, races and religions and shaped by a complex past and dynamic present. Bose Pacia strives to foster an active discourse between these artists and the international art community by featuring exhibitions that contextualize contemporary art from the region within its rich artistic traditions and current social tensions.
