Duncan Ross Ph.D.  After watching his father suffer through unsuccessful treatment for Acute Myeloid Leukemia, Duncan Ross received his Ph.D. in Immunology from the University of Miami in the lab of Professor Robert Levy Ph.D. in the study of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation for hematologic disorders and the suppression of graft vs. host disease. Dr. Ross investigated various methods of immune suppression, from regulatory T cells to post transplant cyclophosphamide in collaboration with the Leo Luznik transplant lab at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, a collaboration from which multiple publications in the peer-reviewed journals Blood and the Biology of Blood and Marrow Transplantation 1,2 resulted. Duncan's interest in the use of mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) for immune suppression stemmed from this work and the work of others in the use of MSC to treat GVHD. Kimera Labs is now focused on the use of MSC for the suppression of various immune mediated pathologies and regenerative medicine in the US, Latin America, and the Bahamas.
