IF you thought you had problem balancing life take a look at the Lead Singer of Offspring! Dexter Holland finished the Ph.D program in molecular biology he put on hold years ago to focus on rock & roll. Amidst years of touring and recording, the singer-guitarist chipped away at his degree, conducting research and eventually publishing a 175-page dissertation on the molecular dynamics of HIV and general virus/host interactions. Holland graduated from the University of Southern California in 2017.
“While Holland noted that his research was neither meant to be a cure, nor an immediate step towards a cure, he said, “I believe that by adding to the vast amount of information that we’ve learned about HIV in the last 30 years or so, we’ll get there. Toward that end, I’m going to continue to do research, and you’ll probably see some of my research papers get published here and there over the next few years.”
How Bad ass!!! If he can live a life of Rock N Roll, and Become a Dr. searching for research towards a cure for HIV I think it is safe to say, we are all wasting away if were still complaining about life instead of contributing! What an inspiration!
