This is devastating news for Canada. Fortunately, Canadian Universities are working on ways to combat Bovine Spongiform Encepalopathy or Mad Cow Disease.  By working in Dr. David Bressler’s lab at the University of Alberta, I will be doing my small part by looking at utilizing Specified Risk Material (SRM) – tissues where BSE causing prion protein concentrate – in ways that safely add value rather than cost money to dispose of the materials.   Wish me luck!
