Dispatch from Sweden: News from the 2020 Van Wagenen Fellow

In January 2019, the William P. Van Wagenen Fellowship was awarded to Ezequiel Goldschmidt, MD, PhD, to pursue the research topic of “Recreating neuroplasticity via a cortico-cortico trans-pial bypass” at the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden.

Dr. Goldschmidt began his fellowship in July 2020, under the supervision and mentorship of Dr. Jens Hjerling-Leffler.

This month, Dr. Goldschmidt’s first fellowship paper was published in Scientific Reports. Although the paper was started during Dr. Goldschmidt’s residency in Pittsburgh, the time at Karolinska Institutet, as well as the insight and advice from Dr. Hjerling-Leffler, was instrumental in getting the paper to the finish line.

The NREF congratulates Dr. Goldschmidt and looks forward to following the progress of his fellowship.
