Education: Dr. Omary Chillo received his medical degree in December 2008 from Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences (MUHAS) in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. He then persuaded his PhD education at Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich, Germany and graduated with honor in December 2014. His PhD work was based in the development and remodeling of arterial vessels during vascular occlusive diseases. In his work, he found that mast cells activation promote the growth of collateral arteries (arteriogenesis) bypassing a site of stenosis protecting tissue from ischemic injury (Chillo et al., 2016, Chandraratne et al., 2015, Qin et al., 2013).
