News feature on Jackson's Ride the Gorge

We were honored to participate in a news piece tonight by Deb Knapp at KATU in Portland about a sarcoma fundraiser, Jackson's Ride the Gorge.  This event is conducted by the NW Sarcoma Foundation this year and past years in memory of Jackson, a young man who lost his battle with osteosarcoma.  For the online video link, see .

Scientific Presentations in Scottsdale and Princeton

It was an exciting week for the Keller laboratory, with three presentation;  1 on rhabdomyosarcoma (Charles) & 1on satellite cells (Tohru) at the FASEB Muscle Satellite and Stem Cell Conference in Carefree (Scottsdale), Arizona, and 1 on rhabdomyosarcoma (Charles) at the Molecular Therapeutics Cancer Research Association Conference at Princeton University.  All three presentations were received well, and what we hope is that more muscle stem cell biologists, and more pharmaceutical industry scientists, will become interested in rhabdomyosarcoma biology and therapy.  In there, somewhere, was a red-eye flight, but it was certainly worth the extra effort.
