Stem Cell Therapy



After being diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer, Dr. Dean A. Strand read a science article about research in which adult stems cells were able to kill lung cancer cells in mice.  Not wanting to undergo chemotherapy or radiation therapy or to have the large portions of his lungs removed, he decided to contact the University College London’s UCL Centre for Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine in order to participate in experimental stem cell therapy for lung cancer.  In this experimental therapy, being conducted in cooperation with PhD Candidate in Stem Cell Biology, Mrs. Amy Hammett (also a faculty member in the Campus High School Biology department), in June 2010, Dr. Strand’s lungs were injected with the foreign DNA of embryonic stem cells.  Learn more about stem cell therapies here.




Pedigree on the Inheritance of Nicotine Addiction



Dr. Strand, in an attempt to understand the nature of his lifelong nicotine addiction, also had a pedigree made by a genetics counselor.  This Virtual Lab on Pedigree helped him to understand more about his lifelong addiction and to finally quit smoking.
