Hadassah On Call Podcast Episode Explores Creating New Kidneys from Stem Cells and More.

Why do children with rare kidney diseases do poorly in school? Why do the grandchildren of Holocaust survivors have a higher risk for kidney disease? How can stem cell research provide a life-saving alternative to finding kidney donors?

Discover the answers to these questions and more in the latest episode of the Hadassah On Call podcast, “Uncovering New Ways to Treat Kidney Disease in Children.” Join host Benyamin Cohen for a fascinating conversation with Dr. Oded Volovelsky, the head of Hadassah’s pediatric nephrology unit, as he sheds light on his groundbreaking research. In the episode, Dr. Volovelsky’s passion for being a Hadassah doctor – and his unwavering dedication to his research – shines through.

“I think this is what makes Hadassah so unique and special,” says Dr. Volovelsky, responding to a question about the importance of research. “You always try to find new ways of care and to find new types of disease and not just obey what is accepted in the world.”
