2019 GORDON SIGNY FELLOWS ANNOUNCED
The Trustees of the World Pathology Foundation are pleased to announce the recipients of Gordon Signy Fellowships for study in 2020. The quality of applicants for this year made the choice very difficult for the Fellowship's Regents and the two chosen are outstanding young pathologists who will make a significant impact on the care of patients in their home countries.
