He served as Chair of the Department of Neurology from 1973- 1991. He is the founding Director of the NIH funded Alzheimer's Disease Center at UT Southwestern and it has been funded through five consecutive competitive funding cycles since 1988 and will be funded through 2016 representing 27 years of continuous NIH Center funding.

Dr. Rosenberg has received important honors and awards including the prestigious UT Chancellor's Discovery Lecture, invited by Chancellor Francisco Cigarroa for the Chancellor's Council Meeting and Symposium, the University of Texas System, 2013. The Discovery Lecture was: "DNA A?42 Vaccination as Therapy for Alzheimer's Disease?. He was awarded the World Federation of Neurology, 1st Science Medal for Scientific Achievements in Neurology and Neuroscience, presented at the World Congress of Neurology in Bangkok, Thailand in 2009.
He is an Honorary Member (Elected) of the American Neurological Association, 2006 and the American Academy of Neurology 1997.
He received the Nancy R. McCune Research Award of the Alzheimer's Association (AWARE) (2005).

He received in 2009 a US Patent as Inventor of "Amyloid ? Gene Vaccines?. This DNA vaccine has the potential to be a safe and effective therapy to prevent Alzheimer disease.
