Over the past 15 years there have been a large number of graduate students, technicians, fellows, Instructors, Assistant Professors, visiting scientists, undergraduate students, and administrative and financial assistants who have been part of the Laboratory for Neurodegenerative Research (LNR).  You have worked long hours and devoted much effort to our research and I am deeply grateful to each and every one of you.  In particular, I need to thank our current lab members: Wen, Zemin, Wei, Grant, David, Diana, Yuan, Tia and Ali.  Thank you very much!  I treasure your friendship and loyalty, and I promise to make this transition as orderly and harmless as possible.

I also have to say a special word of thanks to Dennis Selkoe, my mentor, long-time collaborator, and dear friend.  Thank you for the faith that you have shown in me and your encouragement!

To our many collaborators, please know that we are committed to completing our collaborative projects.  To our funders, thank you for your faith and trust.
