Those of you who attended our last symposium heard Dr. Gerald Downes describe his work with MSUD zebrafish. My daughter Hannah I visited his lab, where we saw firsthand what zebrafish look like, and how zebrafish embryos can be used to help identify drugs which might improve treatment.
We thank Sharlene Balinsky for sharing her experiences when she was diagnosed with an ovarian cyst with us, and Shohreh Heydarian Bonyadi for sharing her son Hootan’s story and their family’s experience with MSUD in Iran.
I ask you to think about the many wars in which you can help your MSUD community.
- Volunteer for the newsletter. Glenda Groff is retiring from her post as Diet Wise editor, and a replacement is needed.
- Raise funds to help support important research.
I hope to hear from you! Warmly, Karen Dolins.
