    I've searched and googled and can't find that there's already a thread on this, amazingly.

    Just read this on the MEA's site - look, there'll be livestreaming!!!

    Not quite sure of what. Is it the whole conference, @charles shepherd?

    Delighted to see Rituximab featuring at the CMRC conference, and even more pleased to see George Davey Smith is coming to the party. He's a really interesting thinker, and just the kind of scientist we need to bolster the field in the UK - a highly respected researcher.

    Profile: George Davey Smith - insight (MRC)
    Plus more serious stuff, Professor George Davey Smith - School of Social and Community Medicine (Bristol University)

    He's probably best-known for his work on "How our genes conduct radomised trials "



    He co-authored and interesting 2007 article with Esther Crawley: Is chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS/ME) heritable in children, and if so, why does it matter? which I thought showed unusual clarity in this field, and even discussed problems of lack of correction when making many comparisions, a real problem with mecfs genetics studies.

    That's interesting. And would probably explain Crawley's recent comments in the media re heritability, which surprised me:
