    You’re right I extrapolated spinal tissue from “spinal cord”.

    No not at all, if anything I’m remarking at my shock that such a renowned doctor actually took the time to listen to anything I said! They tend to be very snide when trying to discuss something within their field ( and really they have a PhD, and for most of us we are just simple plebeians) ; almost with a sort of God complex when they are at his level especially (A caveat: this is all speaking in context before he murdered his wife, which resulted in a complete shock wave across the neurological field in Ontario! I cannot get a neurosurgeon for the life of me, I seen a post on Facebook That went viral where a woman posted her wait time to see a neurologist was 4 1/2 years. The wonders of socialist healthcare! Regardless of what he did, just speaking of his skill and credentials he was very Highup). He didn’t give me his personal info for my shamefully limited knowledge, it was to put him in touch with whomever J?rgen deemed best suited. I was in no way being braggadocious. For there is nothing to be boastful about I just find the situation to be a funny coincidence, as he worked directly with Fehlings And he had no knowledge of the work being done in Russia.

    I will also try and email him again.In any shape or form.

    James? Something you would be able to do or no? If you don't want to - no biggie.

    The victim of that despicable murder was from Tecumseh which is on the outskirts of where I live. Her family is still there

    We had an anaethesiologist murder a nurse at a local hospital ... drive his Porsche down to the river and took his own life with meds he knew how to use. As a result, security has tripled at all of our medical places
    Absolutely! However I cannot even get Fehlings to respond to an inquiring email. In fact my general practitioner cannot get a response from him or his team in regards to my syrinx, nor can my physiatrist!

    Evidently he is active on Twitter, And you have had exchanges with him… Maybe you can try and contact him through that outlook and I can act as an arbiter and report back here. I refuse to give that website my patronage In any shape or form.

    I will also try and email him again. However I remember being in Western and asking if they ever give access to the research wing, I got a pretty forceful no.

    I’ll try. I found him to be a bit ‘short’ in answering on Twitter. I had asked his opinion on th epidural stim stuff before.
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    If there was no hope then I would agree. But everyone who comes here hopes for a cure, and raising money is surely the first step.

I?m just saying when I talked with someone that was closely involved with the trial happening in Russia a few years ago, every email had a confidentiality disclaimer on it.
    It has been explained many times that during scientific presentations when unpublished data is being discussed, the video equipment and cell phones are turned off. It's not that researchers wish to hide their work from the general public. It's a very common courtesy given to them so their chances of publishing their data is not ruined. Journals do not publish projects where outcomes have already been widely disseminated in public. We are lucky they share their work and trust us not to ruin their chances at publishing. Researchers that do not publish seldom remain employed for very long. It's part of the job and demands to remain employed in the labs.

    - you know nothing of the state of the UK National Health Service and its SCI services - it's facing oblivion.

    - you know nothing of capital markets apart from a skewed opinion influenced by Geron/Acorda/Stem Cells Inc failures. Traditional Pharma and Biotech is not the only model out there in the 2017 markets. There are startups funded by venture philanthropy, social enterprises funded by social impact invetors and there are entrepreneurial folk making things happen out there in smart ways.

    - you dont seem to realise that most academic institutions financially survive through the licensing of intellectual property to capital market driven companies. Try taking that away and see how many researchers will be without jobs.
    Actually, now I'll stop indulging you. You're rather tiring. It's impossible to have a conversation with someone who spins the truth and says in every point on this latest message, that I don't know this or don't realise that.
    How can you know who knows what about what? At first I thought it was a debating tactic but have realised that it's just sheer arrogance which is used to cover ignorance of what you don't know and to amplify what you do.
    Good day, sir.

    PS. Corbyn and Sanders are great men who aren't responsible for the neo-liberal agenda which has hurt universities, research, and medical care. I hope they're both elected so they can start fixing these problems.

    Cure related? Lack of cure related? Blow hard?

    I'll guess you'll have to decide. I'd say yes if you look at the whole conversation as opposed to one piece. It's up to you if you want to read it or not.

    I have read it. You should read it then you can come up with an educated decision!

    on a side note, how do you define “great men”?
