  DR JERRY COOLEY  
 

Dr. Jerry Cooley is a board certified dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon in Charlotte, North Carolina and has a practice performing hair transplantation surgery. He has also performed research studies on cloning hair follicle cells while at the University of Maryland in Baltimore.

It is believed that Dr Cooley is working with internationally recognized plastic surgeon James Vogel, M.D., on hair cloning technology similar to the research conducted by British biologist, Dr Colin Jahoda.

While not much is known about the extent of his research, Dr Cooley has previously stated the he thinks the technology will only be available in about 10 years. He has given the following explanation:

"The chief worry with using laboratory grown cells is that they might cause tumors when placed back into the skin. So far cell therapy for other applications has not been known to be associated with tumor formation. Before granting approval, the FDA would require adequate proof that implanted hair follicle cells did not give rise to any tumors. Although the potential for cell therapy to provide an answer to those suffering with hair loss is great, these obstacles will prove challenging to researchers. Although a research group may at any point unexpectedly report that they have achieved success in these areas, the more likely scenario is many more years of basic research before we know what role cell therapy will play in the treatment of hair loss."
