Amazingly, the BHD Research Blog has been going for nearly a year – my first post was way back in June 2009! It’s been an interesting period for me personally, expressing my opinion and thoughts on the ups and downs of BHD research and I hope to remain doing so for the foreseeable future. However what I can’t say is what’s going on in your lab right now and I think it’s something that would benefit all the scientists in the field…have you recently tried out a new FLCN antibody? Are you currently optimising a basic technique but having difficulties? This is what the BHD Resources forum was designed for. Go online and let people know if you’ve discovered something useful…by all means, don’t give away any confidential secrets, but a friendly ‘heads up’ could help out a BHD colleague!
