So I am aware never to start a paragraph with an apology, but on this occasion I will. I know I have been rather quiet, this is because I have been swamped with work and assignments. But finally the cloud has lifted, the inbox has been cleared and I can hear the music again!
Of course I can´t resist looking at the news, so the biggest story that has caught my eye last week was the new project that was launched offering genetic tests to overweight patients on the NHS (UK), you can read the full story here. This project, funded with lottery money could potentially be rolled out nationally if proven successful. I think I need to dedicate a full post to this one, so watch this space!
In any case, here are updates I thought were interesting.
