"A Sleuthing Revolution!"
Dr. Anna Greka, a member of the DENT Disease Foundation's Medical Scientific Advisory Board of Directors, just delivered an amazing TED Talk about how advancements in genetic research are changing EVERYTHING about rare genetic diseases. Watch the Ted Talk here! Although this talk is NOT about DENT disease (it's about another rare kidney disease called MUC-1), the genetic mysteries she and her team are unraveling will help cure many other genetic diseases, including DENT. She mentions the Nelson family. Recognize the name? Richard Nelson was recently interviewed by ASN's Kidney News along with Jen Meyer and Jill Goodrich (DENT Disease Foundation co-executive directors). This interview was featured in a previous DENTed Blog. Read that article here! Thank you, Dr. Greka and team for all you do! Our hearts are full!
