Kudos to NAVBO President Chris Hughes, University of California Irvine, who is featured in a recent in “On the Cutting Edge” published by Cure HHT. Dr. Hughes serves on Cure HHT’s North American Scientific and Medical Advisory Council and as Director of Cure HHT Basic and Translational Science Research. In the interview, Chris shares the history of his involvement in HHT research, recent discoveries of interest, and his hopes for the future of HHT therapies.
Thanks to diligent Open Forum contributor Leah Greenspan and NAVBO's vigilant Sharon Smolen, we have learned that a gorgeous zebrafish image by David Castranova in Brant Weinstein’s lab has not only earned 2020 Nikon Small World Photomicrography but also is in line for inclusion on an upcoming "” stamp from the US Postal Service. Let’s get small!
