Dexter Holland Of The Offspring Earns A PH.D. In Molecular Biology

The Offspring’s frontman Dexter Holland is now a doctor after graduating with a PH.D. in Molecular Biology.

Dr Holland’s work will be put to good use as he did his paper on causes of AIDS.

Dexter earned his PH.D. at the University of Southern California.

In a statement he said, “My research focused on the human immunodeficiency virus, or HIV, the virus which causes AIDS. I am interested in virology and wanted to contribute in some small way to the knowledge which has been learned about HIV and AIDS. This terrible disease remains a worldwide epidemic – over 35 million people worldwide are currently infected and living with the HIV virus. Over one million people a year die from this disease.

“My research is not meant to be a cure or even an immediate step toward a cure, but 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”.

Dexter’s thesis title is “”Discovery of Mature MicroRNASequences within the Protein-Coding Regions of Global HIV-1
Genomes: Predictions of Novel Mechanisms for Viral Infection and Pathogenicity””

The big question for fans is does this mean the end of The Offspring. That answer is No. “It means…the BAND IS BACK ON! Well, we never really stopped touring and making records, but we’ll be doing a bunch of shows all around the world this year plus recording new stuff every chance we get. Look for new music by us out soon.

See you on the road! Dexter”.

The last album for The Offspring was ‘Days Go By’ in 2012.
