I find CJD families often like to cut beef out of their diet. I could write a book about the million different reasons why–but then again, many of these books have already been written.

Congratulations to Dr. Valerie Sim and her colleagues at the University of Alberta for gaining $1.6 million in research money. Sim is trying to answer the age-old question of how prions change their shape. Follow Dr. Sim on twitter. She’s @PrionGirl. Trust me when I say the world cannot wait to hear her answers to this!
