What Altruism Does to You, with Jorge Moll

In Brazil, the field of neuroscience is steadily climbing itself on top of researches, studies, tests, and brain scans, and scientific research is getting closer and closer to answers that humankind has been asking since a long time ago.

Neuroscience is actually quite a strong field in the moderately-developed country that is Brazil, but even the statement that Brazil is not a developed country is entirely wrong. Because of the vast territory that it has, not every region is as advanced as the capital and the metropolitan centers of the nation. São Paulo, for example, is a state full of well-developed and financially active cities, including its capital, São Paulo city. Learn more about Jorge Moll at Google Scholar.

Rio de Janeiro is another region that has strong presence in the neuroscience field, and the most significant scientific researches often take place in the Universities of the country, including the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, acronym UFRJ.

Jorge Moll is one of the best researchers and scientists that represent Brazil, having graduated from UFRJ and currently studying and scanning brains to figure out new interactions in the human body that science was not aware of yet. Read more about Jorge Moll at crunchbase.com.

One of the most famous studies that Jorge Moll has conducted has to do with generosity and altruism, two ways of thinking that were often thought to be simple ethical and moral choices. That was without considering the effects that altruism has on the human’s well-being, the body’s health and what good “doing good” does for our brains.

Jorge Moll found amazing discoveries by having their patients do some good for others, like give a little bit of their time and attention to someone else, even though they are in a hurry; helping someone with a task, even though that person was completely fine with doing it alone; even donating a few coins to a homeless would trigger something in the brain.

As it turns out, the experienced scientist Jorge Moll discovered that acts of generosity do trigger a primitive part of the brain and releases chemical components that make us feel very good and improves our well-being.

Jorge Moll was amazingly pleased to see that our brains are hard-wired to want to help others.

Eric Pulier has his hand in technology, government, philanthropy, and science. This 1988 Harvard Graduate is a very successful businessman and has founded/cofounded over 15 businesses. It’s takes a high amount of intellect to do what he does, but he’s one of the most humble guy’s a person will ever meet. There is no comparison in present time and if someone meets him, they might not know that they’re in the presence of greatness. Early on, Mr. Pulier was a 1984 Graduate of Teaneck High School in New Jersey and while he was in the fourth grade, Pulier was already programming computers. Talk about intellect. By high school, Pulier started a database computer company. From an early age he just had that “it” factor. After he graduated from (Magna Cum Laude) of Harvard University in 1988, he was destined for greatness and moved across the country to Los Angeles, CA. By 1991 Eric Pulier founded (PDT)People Doing Things. His advanced technology for that time was a big help for education and healthcare. He was just getting his feet wet and as everyone all knows, the sky was the limit. Some of his biggest success included:

What can anyone say? Eric Pulier has done it all and then some. He’s truly effected the lives of many people in this world and even if he doesn’t receive his due, Eric Pulier is a true American Hero.

How Clay Siegell Is Pushing The Bio-Tech Engine Into The Future

Bio-Technology is a huge field of positives and negatives. The positives would be from the advancement in the fight against cancer and the negatives would be from the companies that are only looking for a quick buck. One of the most, if not the most successful bio-technology company in the world, Seattle Genetics is pushing well beyond the limits of any other in it’s field of work. The company is headed by Dr. Clay Siegell whom is a revolutionary when it comes to the development and commercialization of pharmaceutical cancer medications. He is a very accomplished doctor as he sports a Ph.D in Genetics from the prestigious George Washington University and a B.S. in Zoology from the University of Maryland. Siegell is the heart and brains of this business and continuing to push the company even further into the future.

Dr. Clay Siegel has worked for many prominent corporations such as Bristol-Myers Squibb, National Institute of Health, and National Cancer Institute before the genesis of Seattle Genetics. Currently this super power is building for the future and has many new products on tap, an increase in staff and infrastructure. Seattle Genetics specializes in (ADC) and (SEA)Technology. The company posts significant amounts of their research and trials unlike the competitors. The company’s (ADCs) deliver cell killing agents straight to cancer cells and their (SEAs) compliment it by increasing the potency of monoclonal antibodies. It’s one, two punch for cancer cells that is really effective and causes positive results in patients. To keep from being too medical technical, here are some of the products currently in the works for fighting cancer:

SGN-CD19A
ASG-15ME
SGN-CD123A
ASG-22ME
SGN-CD33A

As stated above, these pharmaceuticals are designed for the fight against cancer and each medicine treats different cancerous forms. As you can see, this is just a sliver what Seattle Genetics is capable of and Dr. Clay Siegel is on board for the long run so the general public can expect bigger and better things in the near future.
