21st FOP Collaborative Research Project, Annual Report

Monday, 7 May, 2012 (All day)

What kind of a year was 2011 for FOP research? A year when blueprints were drawn - when foundations were poured and superstructures emerged - when scientists and engineers measured progress in stories built - when the view got better the higher one reached - when architects and builders used their tools and powers of insight to shed light on the metamorphosis of FOP and move one level higher, one step closer to "solving this embarrassing puzzle."

The FOP gene discovery and the advances it has inspired have transformed thinking and have altered horizons. It has been six years since that momentous milestone, and I see now from the doctor’s and the patient’s perspective - that the world no longer looks the same.
