We are starting the New Year with the wonderful news that Professor Adrian Bird has been Knighted for his services to science.  For anyone following Rett research Prof. Bird needs no introduction. His list of contributions to the Rett field are numerous starting with the discovery of the MeCP2 protein in the early 1990’s to the development of the first animal  model in 2001 to the unexpected discovery that Rett symptoms are reversible.  We congratulate Sir Adrian Bird and wish him the best for 2014 – may the discoveries continue!
