World Arthritis Day 2012

Today, Friday 12 October, is World Arthritis Day. The event is designed to raise awareness of rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases. Millions of people around the world suffer from such diseases, so events like this are really important. Hopefully research into chronic pain conditions such as arthritis will continue to make progress to help improve treatment and pain management.

Congratulations Dr. Kirsten McKenzie

We would like to congratulate Dr. Kirsten McKenzie (MIRAGE lab Malayisa Campus) and husband Richard Fender on the birth of their baby boy. Rylan James McKenzie Fender was born in Malaysia just three weeks ago. He is doing really well, is incredibly cute, and surely a cognitive neuroscientist in the making?
