    Just registered! Looking forward to see if there is any news about Mark Davis’ work regarding t-cells, as well as Ron’s metabolic trap.

    I’m not expecting any news, but would more than welcome it :)

    Looking forward to it – though in the UK it'll end at two in the morning, so I might not last the whole distance!

    I will be going there in person :) not sure how long I can last but im going to go sleep in my car during the lunch period. Hope to see some of you guys there!

    @raghav Also disappointed that Dr Phair wont be there! I thought he would present his results by the end of the summer.

    He may be there and present to the scientists. I believe last year they had closed door presentations on day 1. Also, I’m sure Ron can easily explain anything that is ready for the public.

    Last year they had 12 presenters. So far only 9 have been announced so there is a good chance we will see a few
    more announced. I'm hoping we hear from Mark Davis also!

    I am planning on going Saturday in person too and hope to be able to meet other patients. Haven’t posted on this forum too much lately but did in years past. As I am also moving from another state to the Bay Area just beforehand, I have a lot to do! Just trying to hang on—-

    Pleased to see Oystein Fluge on the list! I hope we get some good news from Norway this time. :gift:

    I shan't be watching the whole thing live as it kicks off at 2am Melbourne time but I will catch what I can the next day.

    Can do that, although it will be live streamed, so really we can have a bunch of people contributing to a conversation in time with the presentations.

    That would be excellent though those who are actually there might pick up a few things through interacting with the presenters. :)

    Depending on my PEM I will try do so. Unfortunately I doubt i can make it through the whole thing before crashing hard. However , afterwards I will surely try to contribute to that thread.
    Maybe someone should start that thread and we all discuss what we think including the ones who saw it remotely.

    Relieved that you volunteered, @Diwi9. I have gotten so it is really tough to take notes because of the speed involved of hearing, comprehension, discrimination of key points, translation into notes, spelling and handwriting. I used to be excellent at all that prior to this condtion, but now you should see my attempts at spelling when flying at the speed of a lecture.

    Having said that, I get it that we wouldn’t be expected to take notes on everything but on impressions that might not be relayed by the livestream.

    Paying attention most of a day starting at an early hour will be strenuous, and not having much of a science background won’t make it easier, but nevertheless,

    I am so excited about the chance to see the presenters and other patients at the conference, it is going to be really special!

    I'm with you all the way on this post @Sing...and will do the best I can. On good days, I can sometimes exceed my own expectations, but staying cognitively focussed all day will likely not be possible for me...even on a great day. I will be there with my husband, so that will help...but very excited to know we'll have @Learner1 there too! Looking forwarding to meeting some of you in person.

    Appreciate you're going to the Symposium. Looking forward to your posts.
