In MEMORY OF KUN LIN
With a heavy heart we communicate the recent tragic passing of my graduate student, our colleague and friend, Kun Lin, on February 12, 2021. Our tears and sadness are hard. Kun was full of radiant energy, intellect and passion, kind and generous, with dreams to become a professor. To learn more about Kun's short but wonderful life, to share your thoughts and contributions:
GOFUNDME - To provide support to Kun's parents for medical, funeral, and other costs, please visit.
KUDOBOARD - to share your thoughts and photos about Kun.
MEMORIAL BENCH - To contribute to the Kun Lin Memorial Bench, please donate to the Atlanta Botanical Garden (Kun’s favorite place in Atlanta, GA). Please indicate donations are “In memory of Kun Lin”.

Gary Bassell and Eric Wang Receive NINDS Funding for Collaborative Research on Myotonic Dystrophy
The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke has awarded Bassell’s and Wang’s laboratories $2.2 million over five years to examine the neuronal function of Muscleblind-like proteins, which play key roles in myotonic dystrophy.
