|What is said about the CHFO|
Our mentors are providing testimonials to us in order to express their personal connection they have towards our channelopathy initiative.
Bertrand Piccard: .....provided the testimonial of the 2012 CHFO New Year Card "When John Fitzgerald Kennedy announced that he aimed to have a man walk on the moon within ten years, he galvanized a whole nation. Today, let us undertake an equally ambitious campaign not to conquer some other planet, but create a better life for ourselves on this one".
Prof. Erwin Neher: .....was the author of the ambassador testimonial "Channelopathies are unique 'experiments of nature', allowing researchers to study the link between subtle, well-defined changes in molecules and their clinical manifestations. As such they carry immense potential for understanding human biology and for rational drug design".
Dr. James Burge: .....monitored a CHFO mutation analysis "In the age of molecular genetics diagnostic physiology is more critical than ever for establishing causation and defining pathomechanisms. In a recent collaboration the channelopathy foundation was able to provide our centre with high quality voltage clamp studies of CLCN1 sequence variants from individual patients that could be integrated into our clinical Myotonia Congenita diagnostic service".
