Meet Professor Stenberg

Virgil Stenberg

After earning a Doctor of Chemistry degree from Iowa State University, Stenberg was appointed professor at the University of North Dakota (UND), where he worked from 1960-1993. UND named Stenberg Chester Fritz Distinguished Professor, which is a lifetime appointment, and he retired with Professor Emeritus status.  

Stenberg began his rheumatoid arthritis research to alleviate his wife Helen’s pain. After solving rheumatoid arthritis and Helen’s health was restored, he proved the solution (Microdose TherapyTM) also applied to related inflammatory diseases such as fibromyalgia, general arthritis, osteoarthritis, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, asthma, and dementia.  After retiring from UND, Stenberg financially supported the Helen Foundation’s continued research on inflammatory diseases, volunteers as its research director, and endows Christian churches and college student centers.
