Leap Day is always good for trivia night (when is it a leap year? when ISN'T it a leap year?), but Leap Day also marks the official Rare Disease Awareness Day. While held on the 28th in off-years, Rare Disease Awareness Day seeks to bring these very special patients into the light and generate support for everyone who is on a rare medical journey. While we are all trained to 'think horses' when we 'hear hoofbeats', today is the day to hug a zebra!

A very brief Bon Voyage to TMED MSc student Abhishek as he sets off on a mini-adventure to Emory University in Atlanta, GA. Abhi will be visiting the Emory Clinical Biomarkers Laboratory and seeing first-hand how our first-ever metabolomic data are collected from previously-shipped samples. Can't wait to see the data and we hope Abhi enjoys all the tasty eats that ATL has to offer!
