Clay Siegall: Man On A Mission

The fight against cancer has been an ongoing battles for years. This deadly disease can effect many vital organs such as the lungs, liver, and more. Did you know that there have been some major improvements in cancer research over the past few years? Some of the best medications have been on the scene for about 15 years and they are revolutionizing the industry by saving many more lives. Dr. Clay Siegall is one of the most important figures in cancer research and this is why. Dr. Siegall has an extensive educational background with a Ph.D in Genetics from the prestigious George Washington University as well as a (BS) in Zoology from the University of Maryland. Did I mention that he is the holder of at least 15 patents and has written over 70 publications.

 

Seattle Genetics is on of the leading Biotech companies in the world that specialize in the development and commercialization of cancer breakthrough therapies. Dr. Siegall just happens to be the President and CEO of this remarkable organization. The Bothell, Washington based organization has quickly become one of the fastest growing companies in the nation, reported by Forbes. Earlier last year Vice President Joe Biden stopped by (SG)headquarters on congratulatory purposes and with such huge growth, Seattle Genetics will be adding 200 more employees to it’s team.

 

Dr. Siegall has instilled thorough research, scientific innovation, and drug development into the program and so far it has worked. He is also known by many as a scientist, doctor, philanthropist, author, and guest speaker. There just seem to be nothing that this guy can’t do or hasn’t achieved. The good doctor has helped raised hundreds of million of dollars through private and public funding also. When it all comes down to it, Dr. Clay Siegall may have played a bigger role in cancer research than just about anybody else, but that’s another story for another time.
