Shaped by your comments, ideas and suggestions
This issue of Progress has really been shaped by the feedback we
received in response to the last issue.
85% of people told us they find Progress very interesting.
And 71% of people find the magazine easy to read.
We were delighted that so many people took the time to fill in
an online survey to share their thoughts on the magazine and what
they'd like to see in the future.
And the influence of this runs right through the latest issue of
the magazine, including:
- a new international research news round-up
- our feature article - 'a peek inside the pipeline'
- a selection of our favourite letters and comments
And we put your brain donation questions to Dr David Dexter from
the Parkinson's UK Brain Bank.
