Morton Cure Paralysis Fund

I have been asked to give the closing speech at the Third Annual Research Symposium for the Morton Cure Paralysis Fund this Sunday afternoon. The keynote speaker is Dr. Anthony Windebank of the Mayo Clinic. He is the director of the Neural Regeneration Program where his research group is focusing on restoring function to damaged spinal cords.

I am excited to hear his message. It promises to be very informative. Who knows, it may lead to another post. You can read all about MCPF and their upcoming symposium by clicking here.

I introduced you to MCPF in my May 3, 2008 post when I quoted them regarding asking questions about spinal cord injuries
(SCI). The entire MCPF website is full of good information touching on everything from the basic physiological facts of a spinal cord injury to the latest articles on SCI research.

Last year's symposium was very informative when Dr. Wise Young from Rutgers University told us about his spinal cord research in New Jersey and China where he is working with humans in clinical trials. You can watch the entire symposium including Dr. Young's presentation by clicking here.

I am excited to hear you speak as the keynote speaker at the symposium on Sunday. I can't wait to hear what you have to say. I know it will be great.

If you remember from last year I had the honor of being the keynote speaker at the symposium. I enjoyed it and hope to do it again someday.

See you Sunday,
