Presenting at the GoldLab Symposium was one of the highlights of my year. The presenters and attendees are not only passionate but also dangerously smart. I emerged with more opportunities to measurably advance understanding and treatment of my son’s disorder (NGLY1 deficiency) in two days than I had encountered in all of the prior year. It will take months to follow up on all of them. Bringing this group together with a mandate to shake things up creates a truly unique event—an event that I’m going to look forward to returning to every year. The GoldLab Symposium is a unique forum for bringing bright minds to bear on to hard and important problems and illuminating emerging and future opportunities. Larry has created something truly special here.
