Australian Story - From my Father's Fridge (Danielle Tindle)
In the 1980s as an unemployed medical scientist, Professor Robert Tindle made a discovery that led to the breakthrough use of stem cells for saving thousands of lives around the world. University Masters degree student Danielle Tindle, 25, hadn't been close to her father but that was about to change when she was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma two years ago. To save her life, oncologist Dr Devinder Gill from Brisbane's Princess Alexandra hospital ordered a previously untried chemotherapy concoction followed by a stem cell transplant. It was only then that Danielle was told that her father was the scientist who led the group that made the breakthrough discovery of CD 34 markers for stem cells. This resulted in the worldwide use of stem cells to save the lives of previously terminal cancer cases. Robert Tindle is now the Director of a Queensland virus research centre and has an international reputation.
