You are on an extended sabbatical from your job as director of the Mother and Child Anesthesia Unit at the Hadassah Medical Organization. What brought you to St. Louis?

Clinicians go to the scientists for their expertise and scientists come to the hospital to understand the clinical context for their discoveries.
