I don’t know how to emphasize the importance of tick born diseases even harder so everyone gets it. Dr. Neil Spector sadly just passed away, he has been bitten by a tick and here is a very powerful interview with him https://t.co/ltM59bTSrB #ticks #Lyme #LymeMSIDS #ChronicLyme

It is truly sad for the loss of Dr. Neil Spector, a friend, an excellent researcher, and a great clinician @4dukeibc @DukeCancer. He developed lapatinib for HER2 positive metastatic breast cancer. He was also committed to inflammatory breast cancer.https://t.co/fEUaDICUKk #bcsm
