Dr. Breen has donated a fantastic prize
to our 2011 Willem Wijnberg Cancer Fundraiser. He has offered a
prize for the winner to spend a day working in his lab during
the summer of 2011.
The lucky winner will be given the
opportunity to spend a day working in Dr. Breen's lab at North
Carolina State University in Raleigh. The day will involve
isolating DNA from a blood sample of your own dog and then
running a series of quality control tests to evaluate how well
you did. All laboratory work will be guided and supervised by
the team. During your visit you will be given a guided tour of
the lab and have the opportunity to discuss ongoing research
projects with Dr. Breen and his staff. You also will be given a
guided tour of the new $78,000,000 state of the art veterinary
teaching hospital at NCSU, which opens in May 2011.
You will be responsible
for all costs getting to Dr. Breen's lab in Raleigh and any
overnight accommodations. If you are flying into Raleigh from
out of state, however, you will be collected and returned to RDU
International Airport. Lunch with Dr. Breen and his team will be
provided on the day of the lab experience. You will be required
to provide a 2ml EDTA (lilac top) blood tube to the BreenLab
with your Berner's blood sample.
A detailed itinerary will
be developed in consultation with the lucky winner.
***May 6th - I have talked to
a local Berner Lover who lives close by and she is willing to
provide the very lucky winner of this great prize with a place
to stay when they come to visit his lab. That means that the
winner will only need to provide transportation to the Raleigh,
NC area and will have a place to stay close to Dr. Breen's lab.
This is a "once in a lifetime" prize and I'm hoping
that it will help us raise the $35,000 that I have pledged to
raise to support Dr. Matthew Breen's histio research study.
WINNER: Wendy Djang
