SUBHEADING: Integrity In Research and Development
Clay Siegall is a proponent of the newly created ‘Research Integrity Advisory Board.’ The focus of this committee is to redefine and raise the standard of the integrity of the results of research and testing. This is not to condemn anyone, but to help scientists to be able to conduct proper tests and trials despite the pressure in the world of scientific research to publish so as to remain competitive in the academic world and to not only attain funding; but to deliver an honest result regardless of the direction the individual or organization that supplied the funding or grant was looking for.
Holding a Doctorate degree in the field of genetics and a secondary degree in zoology, Clay Siegall is also concerned with the world’s food supply and the use of destructive pesticides. Instead of the toxic chemicals, such as those based on arsenic or formaldehyde, he is focused on an approach in the relatively new field of biopesticides using parasitic fungi that destroys the internal organs of specific insects leaving humans, animals and other insects unharmed.
SUBHEADING: As CEO of Seattle Genetics
A visit a few months ago from Vice President Joe Biden brought attention to Seattle Genetics and CEO Clay Siegall. taking a determined approach with Clay Siegall at the helm, Seattle Genetics has issued an outline to develop more than ten new medications focused primarily on defeating and preventing cancer. at the forefront of this charge are three new medications currently in clinical trials; two for bladder and cancer and one to treat breast cancer.
Also well into the trial phase is Seattle Genetics’ Vadastuximab Talirine designed for those who are experiencing the onset of Acute Myeloid Leukemia.
With the over-hyped fear of ‘Genetic Manipulation’ in television and movies Clay Siegall operates within carefully defined parameters regarding the moral and ethical responsibility of helping all of mankind and not playing. For people with cancer this approach with that ‘Inner Conscience’ and is not one they view with fear, but one they view with hope.
