Clay Siegall; The Down-to-earth Genetics Company CEO

 

Football seems to be a little bit easier to understand than cancer. It seems that most people in America are football fans on some level and understand how the game is played. Only a few of the brightest among us are capable of researching cancer at a genetic level in order to come up with laser focused treatments.

In Clay Siegall, we seem to have the best of both worlds. The CEO of Seattle Genetics blogs about the NFL in his free time. He seems particularly aware of free agent movements in the league. He is posting articles like some sort of ESPN sports writer forecasting the movements of top-tier free agent talent. The super smart cancer scientist would probably be a wicked flow in fantasy football.

It seems that Clay Siegall can love sports and be a nerd at the same time. Right below one of his NFL blogs sits an article about black holes. Apparently, a star and a black hole are getting too close to each other somewhere in the deep reaches of space. Clay Siegall so we likewise is about how incredibly interesting and beautiful the entire cosmic dance is. It is not the typical thing and NFL football fan would find himself talking about. But that’s just the way Clay Siegall seems to operate.

It is really fun to read his blog because it makes him incredibly down to earth. If you did not read his blog before meeting him, you are likely to become intimidated. The incredibly successful CEO has been investigating cancer on a genetic level and coming up with incredibly unique ways to treat the malignant disease.

In 2001, he really stepped up his game against cancer. He took his cofounded company, Seattle Genetics, public. He then went on tour to raise money for his researchers to the tune of $1.2 billion. This money has really stimulated cancer research on a genetic level and has scored the company plenty of green lights and patents. Soon the company will offer oncologists a complete array of targeted treatments so that they may better help their patients in the fight of their lives.
