Back from Prince Edward Island…

Where I was at a biotech conference and watched Mason’s own Professor Nadine Kabbani give a bang up excellent talk on her latest work with the alpha-7 nicotinic receptor (which happens to be G-protein linked).

I also got a good view of the progress (or lack of it) in the area of neurodegenerative diseases (such as Alzheimer’s). It’s frustrating because so much money has been invested and there has been so very little produced for the pipeline (and the patients).

Tomorrow we dive back into building Krasnow’s third decade of success….
