Exceptional care, groundbreaking research
The Washington University NF Center is focused on accelerating the pace of scientific discovery and its application to the care of individuals with NF.
Mason is 7. He loves food (especially when he can share it with others) and anything military (both of his grandfathers served). He likes to fly kites and play with his 5-year-old sister, Alexandra. But Mason was born with a disease called neurofibromatosis type 1, or NF1, and each day can present new challenges for him and his family. Read further about how Mason's family turned to science and research for help in understanding NF1.
Currently there are over 2 million apps available to download in the App Store. As you can guess, that number is on the rise and continues to grow. Finding an appropriate app can be a daunting and overwhelming task, and often times, it requires some research and time. In this month’s Nicole’s Nook, Nicole Weckherlin, St. Louis Children’s Hospital Occupational Therapist, has compiled an extensive listing of educational apps that are worth downloading!
Investigators at the Washington University NF Center were delighted to have Professor Helmut Kettenmann visit from the Max Delbrück Center in Berlin. During his one-day stay, he spent time meeting and talking science with numerous members of the research staff and faculty to learn more about NF. This visit is part of an ongoing international collaboration between the laboratories of David H. Gutmann, MD, PhD and Professor Kettenmann.
