Want to understand you as a person

I want to understand our patients as a person, not as a patient. We do a lot of sophisticated tests, including MRI, blood tests, and genetic and molecular testing, for our patients to understand their disease. We even make induced pluripotent stem cells using their skin cells based on a complex protocol to understand the molecular wiring altered in patients. I need to do these to develop novel treatments for Wolfram syndrome, but I want to understand them as a person. Some of them write blogs and I love to read these. I was reading a blog of Lauren last night. Her blog always makes me feel better. I could sleep well. She is a warm-hearted, caring, and strong human being, which I respect from the bottom of my heart.

Take care,
Fumi Urano
