D. Yitzchak Goldstein
“I have always dreamed of being a watchmaker,” says Yitzchak. “The complexity and exactness required for maintaining adequate functioning of manual timepieces is astonishing.” But, instead, Yitzchak became a watchmaker of the human body. Today, he is Director of Molecular Pathology Testing and of the Virology Laboratory at Montefiore Medical Center and Assistant Professor of Department of Pathology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. His interest in molecular pathology arose from his admiration of nucleic acids’ uses in healthcare – from genetic screening to identifying infectious organisms.
