Support update as of late 2013
We started supporting Dr. Wilcox's lab in early 2012 and stopped in early 2013 before finishing the year. Since Dr. Wilcox has left Cedars we are evaluating our continued support. Since the beginning of April 2013 Dr. Pavel, a researcher in Dr. Wilcox's lab left Cedars. Dr. Pavel is no longer supported by Growing Stronger. See their work under the Learn - Blogs section of the website.
