Another Successful Neuroblastoma Event

The Grand Rounds was a great success. The auditorium was jam packed with people. For better or worse we ran out of food and I was forced to eat when I arrived back home. That was a bit of a problem because I stayed until about 2:30 meeting with a few of the researchers. I am happy to say that I found at least one new connection that appears to hold some promise. It is a bit far out but it holds hope and it is closely related to some very exciting areas in neuroblastoma research. For now, that is really all I can say with any confidence. I need to become more knowledgeable before I discuss it in too much detail and decide how I feel about it in respect to all of the other research out there. Regardless, 10 or 20 hours of my nose in the research and I should have a solid foundation to have an opinion. It is just one more opportunity to try something new.

The entire video of Dr. Granger's presentation was webcast and I have heard that it is available on iTunes. I will have to do some research but I will post more information here for those that are interested.

On the home forefront everything is going well. All of the kids seem to be doing well. Sydney is questionable. She has been complaining of stomach pain on and off for the last day or so. As you might imagine we are not big fans of this type of symptom. We are hoping that she is just full of Sh@#. That would be entirely appropriate. Lynley said it was probably genetic from my side.

I wonder what she means?

Well, I can worry about that later. I have several irons in the fire this morning.

Purpose calls!
