Personal profile


Ross is a laboratory head at the Australian Centre for Blood Diseases, a Monash University department at the Alfred Hospital. As a postdoctoral scientist in New York he helped develop RNA interference technology allowing reversible inhibition of endogenous gene expression in cultured cells and in mice. His laboratory now uses these tools to investigate hematopoiesis and leukemia, focusing on genes recurrently mutated in acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Of particular interest is understanding how mutations affecting transcription factors impose the maturation block in acute leukemia, and novel approaches to trigger leukemia differentiation and prevent relapse. His lab also studies how myeloid lineage antigen-presenting cells regulate T cell costimulation in autoimmunity and cancer.
