Biography

Ross is a laboratory head at the Australian Centre for Blood Diseases, a Monash University department at the Alfred Hospital. As a postdoctoral fellow in New York he helped develop RNA interference technology allowing reversible inhibition of endogenous gene expression in cultured cells and transgenic mice. His laboratory now uses these tools to investigate hematopoiesis and leukemia, focusing on genes recurrently mutated in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). Of particular interest is understanding how mutations in hematopoietic transcription factors impose the maturation block common to all acute leukemias, and novel strategies for triggering leukemia differentiation and clearance.
