- you're welcome. no worries.
Not sure if the petition and all who wrote to have Dr Mikovits play a major role in the 1st International XMRV NIH/Abbott workshop (hmmm - maybe the the last too if this name change takes effect) was actually part of the change. But I'm so appreciative of all the people who made their voices heard.
I have no idea if we actually were part of the change, but am very glad that we tried. Maybe it was all the XMRV/HGRV research that is starting to emerge that changed the way the wind seems to be blowing.
But, bottom line, is that for over 3 months Dr M was on the science committee, and forced to watch the invitation of Mr Switzer etc, while receiving no invitation to participate herself. Now, in the last week, we see her Co-Chairing the CFS (HGRAD??? or HGRVNID) session with Dr Coffin, and presenting the anchor presentation on XMRV in the UK (hey - wait a minute - didn't some UK researchers say that XMRV didn't have a passport?)
all I can say is woo hoo! :victory::victory::victory::victory::victory::victory::victory:
- extremely cool - life as it should be - like Salk presenting at the first polio conference.
- so agree re Dr C's photo.
The Program page has just been the Invited Speakers list since coming on-line in May. The invited speakers page started off with just the subject and the invited speaker + affiliation. The same people and same topics. Over time, they've added photos and bios. It looks to me that F Ruscetti is the only one who hasn't gotten his pic and bio in. The link to the final program (over on the top right) just got added.
@urban - good editor's eye - I never noticed that! guess that would be pronounced /fatiyk/, rhyming with boutique
