He has published peer-reviewed academic papers about hospital response to a dirty bomb in congested cities as well as alternative technologies to remove the risk of a dirty bomb. He was interviewed by TV channels during the Fukushima Nuclear Accident and his interview was published in the New York Daily News. In 2017, Dr. Kamen's accomplishments earned him the Health Physics Society Fellow Award. Dr. Kamen is a member of many national and international working groups including CIPAC of homeland security. Dr. Kamen has been featured in videos for US-DOE-NNSA-ORS and LIA.

Driven to stay abreast of changes in the field, he aligns himself with the Health Physics Society. Due to his vast breadth of knowledge, Dr. Kamen has contributed to various articles, including "Reduction in Occupational and Patient Radiation Exposure from Myocardial Perfusion Imaging: Impact of Stress-Only Imaging and High-Efficiency SPECT Camera Technology."

Outside of his work, Dr. Kamen serves as the elected president of the Greater New York Chapter of Health Physics (GNYCHP) and the president of the GNYCHP Executive Council. Looking toward the future, he has been recruiting fresh college graduates and training them to become board certified health physicists. He intends to pass on the knowledge he has gained from his experiences to encourage the continued growth and success of future generations. Ultimately, Dr. Kamen aims to continue parlaying his expansive breadth of knowledge to his students at numerous institutions.
