By | news, presentation | No Comments

This is just brilliant and comes from a lady who is a clinician and also a prion disease researcher and plays the fiddler like you would not believe. Dr. Valerie Sim is also a member of the Friends and Advisors Group of the CJD International Support Alliance and Medical Director of the Canadian CJD Association so is dedicated to assisting patient associations and CJD patients and families. This is the calibre of researchers we are so lucky to know are working hard to find a treatment or cure for this devastating disease called CJD or prion disease.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

To bring the best review of Prion 2015 in Colorado last month, Deana Simpson and I, on behalf of the CJD International Support Alliance, asked Sonia Vallabh and Eric Minikel to share their blog with you all.

Personally affected by prion disease Sonia and Eric have become prion researchers and their passion, dedication and hard work towards finding a cure provides a lot of hope for other families.
