    Ask if you can visit with Dr Mary Bunge in her lab if you go. What Dr Green is to neurosurgery she is to cure research. Otherwise I'd just go if you think Dr Green might be of help. Isn't Bioaxon, Inc in Montreal? Now that would be worth visiting. I believe I heard the principals who invented Cethrin speak at some point and I believe they both are still there.

    Just watch out for crazy Ukranian quads while in Montreal... :-)
    Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow."

    If you're just going for an evaluation, you may not get to meet with the researchers. I'd think you'd need to set up a separate appointment for that.

    Don't know about whole Canada, but be assured, Montreal is secure.

    Is it worth it??
    I certainly think it's worth it. Have you ever done an biofeedback? Be sure to ask about that, too. And I recommend the Biscayne Bay Marriott. They have great customer service.

    Repairing Spinal Cord Injuries

    W. Dalton Dietrich, Ph.D., scientific director of The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis, who has been successful in using cell-based therapies to restore movement in animals with damaged spinal cords, hopes to get clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to begin clinical trials in humans later this year.

    “Hopefully we will be able to start a Phase I safety trial with about 15 spinal-cord-injured subjects,” Dietrich says...
