Dan 'Sugar' Marino Shares a Laugh with the Lab

Spring brought many special guests to our group including NFL Hall of Fame Quarterback Dan Marino and his smart and witty wife Claire to the campus as a part of the conference of Autism and Environmental Etiology chaired by Dr. McLaughlihn and run in collaboration by the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center.  Due to his endearing personality, Dan quicky adapted to the southern nick name 'Sugar' and was a great sport about learning more about ongoing lab research in injury, stress signaling and how we might use tools we have developed to understand autism.

Dear Brother,

I am Napoleon Zaki from
. I have studied your web site, and I found it the most wonderful site to get right to the True Word of God. My suggestion for you is to create your material in my language of Urdu and Punjabi also. It will bring lots of blessings of the Word of God for the Pakistani and Indian Urdu and Punjabi speaking people. For that purpose, I as a translator will bring your material into Urdu languages and into Punjabi laanguage as well. I will be printing and distributing your material to my people around me. Although it will take your low expenses as well, as fund for the Word of God to reach out to the deserving people. I my self, work on a local radio station also. Many times it becomes difficult for us to keep doing this because of being minorities and because of the lack of the financial resources. I will wait for your response.
