Clark Auctions has been selected to auction the estate of Dr. William Claycomb. Dr. Claycomb, a Louisiana State University Medical School Professor, was known and respected internationally for his cardiac stem-cell research. He was a professor of biochemistry and molecular biology at the LSU Health New Orleans School of Medicine and a pioneer in heart disease research whose discoveries have been recognized worldwide.
Dr. Claycomb earned his doctorate from the Indiana University School of Medicine. He had been a research associate in biological chemistry at Harvard Medical School and was an assistant professor at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston until 1976, when he joined the LSU staff.
Dr. Claycomb was considered to be a research pioneer. His major research interest was to develop mechanisms to repair or regenerate heart-muscle tissue in the diseased heart. He was best known for establishing the HL-1 cell line, the first cell line established that can maintain the heart-cell characteristics and beat in a test tube. He then developed the Claycomb Medium to support and promote the growth of HL-1 cells used for research. Scientists the world over use the HL-1 cell line and Claycomb Medium to conduct research on heart attacks, test new drugs and treatments for heart diseases and conditions, and to study mature heart cell specific genes.
During Dr. Claycomb’s 45-year career, he trained three generations of Louisiana physicians and 23 future doctoral scientists who also went on to distinguished careers in academic biomedical research. He was also an investigator for the American Heart Association.
