Christina Ross, PhD, earned bachelor’s degrees in both psychology and physics from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, and a PhD in Energy Medicine from Akamai University, with a research appointment to the Wake Forest School of Medicine’s Institute for Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM), through the Wake Forest Center for Integrative Medicine. Her dissertation involved research studying the therapeutic effects of PEMF on inflammation/immune biomarkers. She has worked as a surgeon on kidney, pancreas, liver, gut and skin regeneration projects. She currently works as a post-doctoral research fellow at the WFIRM, studying the effects of low-frequency pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) on cell communication and signal transduction. In particular, she studies the effect of pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) and mesenchymal stromal cell (MSC) therapies on neuroinflammation and nerve regeneration in peripheral nerve injury. She has published articles in internationally known medical journals: Journal of Inflammation Research, Stem Cell Research, Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine, Wound Repair and Regeneration, Journal of Science and Applications in Biomedicine, Organogenesis, Biomaterials, World Journal of Gastroenterology, Expert Opinion on Biological Therapies, Digestive and Liver Disease, Integrative Medical Insights, and Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine. She has also authored a book on Energy Medicine and a book chapter titled, “Energy Medicine” for the book Alternative Medicine.
