Ronald A. Sherman, MD, MSc, DTM&H
Co-founder and Laboratory Director Born in Los Angeles, Ronald Sherman earned his B.S. in Entomology at the University of California, Riverside, and his medical degree at UCLA. Between his internship in San Francisco, and his Internal Medicine Residency at UC Davis, he spent a year as a traveling general practitioner in Arizona, treating Native Americans, the Urban Poor, and the rural underserved. In 1988, Dr. Sherman completed the Masters Degree program in Clinical Tropical Medicine at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and also received his Diploma in Tropical Medicine and Hygiene from the Royal College of Physicians. After returning to the US in 1989, he trained as an Infectious Diseases Fellow at UC Irvine, during which time he began his clinical studies of maggot therapy. Dr. Sherman continued those studies as a Geriatrics and Infectious Diseases staff physician at the VA Medical Center, Long Beach. In 1995, he left the Department of Veterans Affairs and joined the Faculty at UC Irvine. With NIH funding, Dr. Sherman worked closely with Michael Selsted's research team as he studied the biochemistry underlying the maggots' antimicrobial and wound-healing activity. Dr. Sherman continued his patient care activities by serving as an HIV/AIDS specialist for the Orange County Health Care Agency 1 or 2 days per week, where he continues to server to this day. In 2003, Dr. Sherman co-founded the BioTherapeutics, Education & Research (BTER) Foundation, a public charity whose mission is to advance health care through education and research in maggot therapy, leech therapy, and the other biotherapeutic modalities. He currently functions as its Board Chair and Director. Since 2004, production and distribution of Dr. Sherman's Medical Maggots has been regulated by the Food and Drug Administration. To meet the demand for maggots, and to uphold the high production standards required by the FDA, he co-founded Monarch Labs, for which he serves as the Laboratory's Director. Dr. Sherman left his position at the University of California in July, 2008, in order to pursue his interests in teaching and research in biotherapy, and to optimize the quality control of Medical Maggots at Monarch Labs.

Ronald A. Sherman, MD, MCS, DTM&H
Ronald Sherman, MD, MSC, DTM&H Born in Los Angeles, Ronald A. Sherman, MD, MSC, DTM&H earned his BS in Entomology at UC Riverside, his MD at UCLA, and his Masters degree in Clinical Tropical Medicine at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. He completed his Internal Medicine Residency at UC Davis in 1987 and his Infectious Diseases Fellowship at UC Irvine in 1991. Dr. Sherman started studying myiasis and maggot therapy as a medical student, published his first paper on the topic in 1983, and started the first prospective studies in 1990. After 4 years working for the Veterans Affairs Medical Center (Long Beach, CA) as an infectious diseases and geriatrics specialist, Dr. Sherman joined the faculty of UC Irvine in 1995, where he continued his research in myiasis, maggot therapy, and maggot biochemistry. Requests for Dr. Sherman's medical grade maggots increased world-wide, and in 2003, the FDA started regulating medicinal maggots as a medical device. After FDA review, Dr. Sherman was granted marketing clearance for his Medical Maggots, but the laboratory had to separate from the University in order to uphold the high manufacturing standards required by FDA. Dr. Sherman left the University himself in 2008 to devote his time to overseeing the Medical Maggot laboratory (now known as Monarch Labs), and directing the non-profit BioTherapeutics, Education & Research (BTER) Foundation, whose mission is to support patient care, education, and research in maggot therapy, leech therapy, and the other biotherapeutic modalities. To minimize conflicts of interest, Dr. Sherman does not accept salary for his laboratory or clinical maggot therapy work. Instead, he supports his family by working part-time as an HIV / AIDS Specialist for the Orange County Health Care Agency.
