Harvey Lodish, a Boston Children's Hospital Trustee, concluded the presentations by highlighting the recent merger of the Immune Disease Institute with the hospital as the Program in Cellular and Molecular Medicine.  He lauded the amazing research going on at BCH and noted that it ranks way above all other Children's Hospitals in the nation in ongoing research and support.
