Some of The Feedback We've Received


2011: Joint Japanese Genetic Societies, Kyoto, June – on the work of AMEND

“We were so fortunate to be able to have you at our meeting.  Your talk certainly motivated many audiences who are fighting against diseases and are supporting patients with diseases.  Thank you very much again for coming to Japan especially in this, our difficult time.”
