When it comes to dealing with and treating cancer, nothing is left to chance. This deadly disease has destroyed the lives of millions of people worldwide. On the other hand, cancer research has done its best treating the disease, but with only so little luck. As of today, the fight against cancer is much more promising thanks to Seattle Genetics. Seattle Genetics, located in Bothell, Washington, is the largest oncology biotech company in the Puget Sound region. This company specializes in developing and commercializing antibody-based therapies. These therapies come in the form of antibody-drug conjugates. ADCs are producing much better results than medications of the past thanks to its powerful delivery.
President and CEO Clay Siegall is running the company at full throttle. Siegall has decades of experience in the game, and he has become the face for the fight against cancer. Siegall has an extensive educational background that most people can only dream of. The guy is known as a doctor, a scientist, an author and a philanthropist. His dedication to his services is unmatched by his peers. The company focuses on rigorous research, and this rigorous research is paying off by saving lives.
