Published two papers from my lab this week! (news link in the next paragraph). Been working on a novel compound related to that in Broccoli- this compound helps to prevent retinal degeneration, and could be helpful in Macular Degeneration. Filed a patent and hope we can take this forward. In the second paper we found that the common anti-diabetic compound metformin may help to treat a rare ‘orphan disease’ in children. Let see where this science on this leads next.
Oh and of course, two drawings at the cafe today!
