Our Friendly Update Page 

* Why do we have this page? We were having an amazing dinner with Jane and Barry Moss in San Francisco one late evening in October during one of my trips, and Barry asked: ‘How can I just read about your work and keep up to date?’... so the idea of a simple site with updated info was conceived! Enjoy! Thank you Barry for the inspiration.

(...and thanks for being so proactive in helping our cause!)
The most frequent question I hear when fundraising for our lab is: How much would you need for your next major breakthrough? The answer is: let’s stop stalling. We’re slowing down as we speak. Anything works, it’s a battle against an enormous disease and we’re past all the obvious tricks. Think of it as helping a force combat an extremely difficult fight; let it have the luxury of, quite simply... fight the best we can! If we wait for a huge sum of money, the work until that time that we receive it just won’t get done.
