My neuro told me in 2011 that he was planning some testing using skin, I think from the hand, and asked me if I would participate. I said yes, but right after that he left for a big job at NIH so this was never followed up on. He also said it wouldn't help *me*, possibly thinking that's what I'd be expecting. That was right after he told me I have brain atrophy.

I'm really glad this research is going forward. Can't see a downside to it.

Thanks, MCB.

This is super interesting! I really look forward to watching how this progresses, i.e., the transplants (will it be very much like stem cell therapy), and if they are successful in keeping the new protected!

Thanks for posting this McB!
