It seems timely, as we take some time off to enjoy the holiday season with family and friends, to reflect on how thankful we are at ISIS for all of our friends and collaborators who give us the opportunity to do deep and meaningful work together. We're very grateful that we are able to partner with such like-minded innovators.
From all of us here at ISIS, we wish you a warm and wonderful holiday season and a new year full of peace and happiness. We'll be back next week and looking forward to an exciting 2012 and the best Sex::Tech conference yet!
