MIAMI (PRWEB) April 26, 2016 -- Global Stem Cells Group has announced that affiliate Kimera Research Labs founder Duncan Ross, Ph.D., a GSCG Advisory Board member, will be the keynote speaker at the Asia-Pacific Symposium in Santiago Chile, July 1-2, 2016. The abstract for Ross's lecture will be, “The mechanism of action of stem cells in regenerative medicine is increasingly being understood to be effected through paracrine factors. Central to the question of when and how to treat an individual disease is where and for what duration a transplanted cell will persist to generate these factors.”
In the absence of a robust ability to track cell persistence in humans, Dr. Ross will present current research in murine hematopoietic and mesenchymal stem cell transplantation with support from human transplant results.
The symposium will be co-sponsored by Global Stem Cells Group and the University of Santiago’s Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Department, and will focus on regenerative medicine and stem cell applications to anti-aging and aesthetic medicine. University of Santiago faculty will lead the symposium, which will host qualified academic and medical groups from around the world who will present their scientific papers.
The symposium is the first joint endeavor between Global Stem Cells Group and the University of Santiago since establishing an alliance recently, and which will be announced at the Asia-Pacific Symposium. It also marks Ross’s first appearance as a member of the Global Stem Cells Group Advisory Board.
Ross received a Ph.D. in Immunology from the University of Miami and specializes in research, mesenchymal stem cell applications, hematopoietic stem cell transplantation for hematologic disorders, the suppression of graft vs. host disease, and various methods of immune suppression.
Global Stem Cells Group and Kimera Labs share a commitment to research and development, and providing stem cell treatments to patients in clinical settings worldwide.
