NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 06/04/15 -- Cell Source, Inc.

Itamar Shimrat, CEO of Cell Source, stated, "Dr. Strom's premier role in the field of transplantation and prestigious research achievements position him well to lead our Scientific Advisory Board. Throughout a long career in Immunobiology, Dr. Strom's principle interest has been in immune 'tolerance,' particularly in transplantation and diabetes. He is specifically interested in the mechanism of tolerance -- which coincides with Cell Source's focus on Veto Cell technology, whose most significant attribute is its tolerance induction capability. We expect Dr. Strom to build and lead an international team of experts that will both guide our long term strategy and streamline our near term development opportunities."
Dr. Strom said, "I am very excited to be working with Cell Source and building a world class Scientific Advisory Board that helps define and perfect the vision of the company." Dr. Strom was the founding President of the American Society of Transplantation, past President of the Clinical Immunology Society and has been awarded life-time achievement awards by the American Society of Transplantation, the American Society of Nephrology and the International Society of Nephrology.
He received his undergraduate and medical school education at the University of Illinois. He trained in internal medicine at the University of Illinois Hospital and Boston's then Beth Israel Hospital and in nephrology and transplant immunology at the Peter Bent Brigham (now Brigham and Women's Hospital). Upon completion of his training, he was appointed Medical Director of the hospital's transplant program. Dr. Strom moved to Beth Israel Hospital, another Harvard teaching hospital, as Medical Director of their transplant program. His work has been continuously funded by the NIH for over 30 years.
