In the current interview, the internationally renowned pancreatologist Fred Gorelick highlights the key importance of mentorship and gives us a hint of his experience in pancreatic research. Dr. Gorelick's discoveries on zymogen activation on the pancreatic acinar cell lead the way on the understanding of the mechanisms underlying cell damage during pancreatitis. This work opened a new field of study and has served as the foundation for subsequent work for a large number of laboratories around the world.
