Biography

Dr. Sell is a board certified pathologist and immunologist. He has published over 400 papers and 12 books. His paper with Barry Pierce (Lab. Invest. 70:6-21, 1994.) was selected as an AACR scientific landmark. Among his findings are: development of delayed hypersensitivity before antibody formation (1959). the role of the thymus in development of immune competence (1964); first identification of immunoglobulin on the surface of B cells (1965; Current contents citation classic, 1984); classification of immunopathological reactions (1971); development of a radioimmunoassay for alphafetoprotein (1972); identification of liver stem cells during chemical hepatocarcinogenesis and in response to injury (1972-94); role of endocytosis in activation of B cells (1974); recognition that the chancre of syphilis is a delayed hypersensitivity reaction (1979); role of mGSTA3 in detoxification of aflatoxin (2004); and characterization of breast cancer stem cells (2012)

Research

Cancer: To determine how bone marrow derived mesenchymal stem cells influence the development of cancers in other tissues. Cancer: To block proliferation of breast cancer stem cells by small molecular inhibitors or inhibitory RNA. This is a critical step to preventing re-growth of breast cancer after chemotherapy or radiation therapy. Carcinogenesis: To study the metabolism of aflatoxin and development of liver cancer in mice lacking glutathionine-S-transferase. Aging: To compare the ability of young vs. old bone marrow derived stem cells to reconstitute and provide long term survival after lethal irradiation and transplantation, and the ability of wild-type bone marrow to prolong life of early aging mice.
