The Lurie Children's Research Fund Children's Ball

This Saturday, December 14th marks the annual Lurie Children's "Children's Ball", which is both a celebration of the work that researchers like myself are doing and an important fundraising event for the Children's Research Fund.  This fund is one of Chicago's major philanthropic organizations and has been affiliated with Lurie Children's since 1991.  It supports a wide variety of innovative basic and clinical medical research and was a key funder of the recent physical expansion of Lurie Children's research facilities in Streeterville, where some of my own research takes place.

I am excited to be presenting some of my recent research at the event, and am looking forward to what Town and Country Magazine calls “The Second City’s First Party.” For more info check out their website.  Hope to see you there!
