The quest to find a cure for treating cancer has been a war that has been waging on for decades now with many scientists all over the world dedicating their time and their entire lives to it. This has seen many governments and private entities invest so much in the establishments of cancer research centers with the sole purpose of deep study and finding of a cure. One good example of such a facility is the Seattle Genetics that was established by Dr. Clay Siegall. Dr. Clay founded Seattle Genetics in the year 1998.
The research company has over two decades now grown to become one of the leading research businesses and with the help of Dr. Siegall went on to develop one of its First antibody drug conjugate that was approved by FDA for use by the public. To add to this great achievement was followed by the research company developing more than twenty other drugs that were approved for the treatment of many other diseases. The research company has over the years been developing many other new lines of drugs to help continue the fight against diseases.
Dr. Clay Siegall is a very remarkable scientist whose initial interest in research and medicine began while he was still a very young boy. His interest was specifically to the field of medicine and always found the aspect of combining technology and medicine to be a topic that had so much potential if applied together to help fight diseases. This motivated him to follow up a career in science when he joined the University of Maryland and studied Zoology.
It was while pursuing her undergraduate studies in Zoology, that Dr. Siegall interest in medicine was re-ignited when one of his close family members was diagnosed with cancer. The treatment regiments that were used to treat the family member shocked Dr. Clay since they were brutal and almost led to the family member to lose their life. This prompted him to turn around his life and dedicate his life to try and find new treatment methods to be used in the treatment of those who have cancer. He sought to improve and make the regiment treatments less painful when administered to cancer patients and to his credit he was able to achieve this and has immensely contributed to the war on cancer.
