    Do you have a link to the abstract or publication to share?

    I sent a DM on twitter - his sister showed me today at a grade school reunion real quick so I didn't really pay close attention. Nothing to do with spinal cord stuff.

    THE SPENCE LAB
    The Spence lab was established in September, 2011 at the University of Michigan. We are located in the Biomedical Sciences Research Building (BSRB). The central theme of the lab is to understand how the endoderm and its associated organs develop, with a focus on intestine and lung development.


    This is what my friend showed me today but she had the total article:

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29110754

    From a farm boy out of nowhere to big time! Good for him. lol

    Another cousin is a professor of mechanical engineering at McMaster (a big health teaching hospital/university) .. worked on the Canada Arm in space.

    I missed all the smart genes apparently.

    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    Also this year we've had two patients attack medical staff (which led to even more security issues with metal wands).

    Getting off topic - sorry peeps

    He also posted this latest publication a couple days ago.

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29152227

    A nice article again he published in Spine Universe on chronic SCI.

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29152227

    His TL is impressive.
    Thanks for posting this! Will read tomorrow (my understanding of all this stuff is waning lol) ... I'm sitting here wondering what TL stands for ... ? It's so hard to get Canadian info - plus BC is far away from Ontario - McGill used to do a lot of research too (Quebec)

    Some of those views are mine, but I'm not SCI so I have stayed out of it until now. I have wanted to speak up every time a SCI member has stated there are so few of us as a reason for no cure. That could be a reason. It's just a depressing reason to read as I suffer a rare genetic paralysis disease that has been stated with an occurrence of 10 per million. I know of no current research or clinical trials in the USA, there is a small one in the UK for my disease. Count yourselves lucky.
    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

    What's the official diagnonsense nonoise? Would future myelin regrowing or functional electrical stim help at all?

    Kinda in the same boat with Transverse Myelitis but makes me paraplegic .. just a non-traumatic paralysis.

    Weird. The article reads like a horror movie plot I'd be afraid to go see.

    These are just links off the top of Fehlings timeline on Twitter. He's one of the most prolific tweeters working in the field. If you want to know what meetings he's attending, what his latest publications are, or articles he's writing and work he's impressed with and retweeting...just check his TL (timeline). There's tons of information there on what is happening in the SCI field along with some great photos and shout outs. It's pretty amazing!

    I love that term 'diagnonsense'. Most people just stare at me when I tell them, so here it is: https://rarediseases.info.nih.gov/di...odic-paralysis. The problem seems to be at the muscle cell wall, not the nervous system. So ya I too have a non-traumatic paralysis, except mine was sped up by breaking my hip and forced immobility.
