Since 1996, Dr. Rosado has co-directed with the archaeologists at the Museo Arqueologico De La Serena, Chile the Rowan University-Museo Arqueologico Archaeology Field school for Bioarchaeological research. Dr. Rosado has implemented a line of research in osteology, with emphasis on paleopathology (study of ancient diseases), demography, and conservation. Since 2000 Rowan students travel to and participate with Dr. Rosado in research at the Museo Arqueologico where they conduct conservation of skeletal remains and excavations of archaeological sites. The research is presented at Rowan University’s STEM Symposium, St. Joseph’s Sigman XI, and Pelaopathology Association.

In 2010 Dr. Rosado’s proposal to create a museum of anthropology at Rowan was approved by the dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. In collaboration with her colleague Dr. Jane Hill, Dr. Rosado developed and created MARU. Dr. Rosado is co-curator of MARU with Dr. Jane Hill.
