Seattle Genetics is a company that researches and creates drugs focused on treating diseases that have high and unchanging mortality rates. The founder and CEO of this company is Clay Siegall. With the hard work of him and his team they have been able to create FDA improved drugs and grow the company into a successful force in the development of cancer and disease treatment.
Clay Siegall went into business for himself after he worked for years at other companies. While working for other people he realized he was not doing the work he wanted to do and not getting fairly compensated for the millions of dollars he was creating for other people. With the hopes of getting the recognition and being able to conduct the research he wanted, he started his own company.
The real aim of Seattle Genetics is to create safer and less radical treatments to diseases such as cancer. With his strong beliefs in medicine, Clay Siegall knew there must be another way to treat these diseases besides amputation and intensive treatments. So him and his team are focused on creating ways to improve not just the outcome of diseases but the way they are treated overall.
After getting his degree in Zoology from The University of Maryland, he went on to George Washington University where Clay studied genetics. Once he earned his Ph.D. he went on to begin his career and started working for other companies. He worked at a few different places such as Bristol-Myers Squibb Pharmaceutical Research Institute and the National Cancer Institute.
While working for other companies he created many patents but was feeling like he did not have the freedom to explore the things he wanted to or receive the credit he should have received. After many years of working for others he felt it was time he began working for himself and created Seattle Genetics. Although the work is hard and it took awhile to experience success, Clay Siegall was able to turn things around and build up his business.
Over the years Clay Siegall has done many great things in the field of cancer and disease treatment. His dedication to improving treatment methods has led to his own success and the improved success to many people living with cancer and other diseases.
