OMI Psychiatry Fellows Collaborate on Journal Publication

Apr 20, 2022

The OMI truly offers a one-of-a-kind opportunity in which doctors gather from all over the world. The aim of an OMI seminar is not only to attend educational lectures, but to engage with one another, create lifelong connections, and collaborate with colleagues from around the world.

Dr. Gina del Carmen Chapa Koloffon from Mexico, Dr. Mohamed Adil Shah Khoodoruth from Qatar, and Dr. Azan Nyundo from the United Republic of Tanzania met one another at the Salzburg Weill Cornell Seminar in Psychiatry, which took place in September of 2021. These three psychiatrists continued their professional relationships beyond Salzburg and worked together on a join publication, which was recently released in Frontiers Journal.

The article is titled “Glutamatergic System in Depression and Its Role in Neuromodulatory Techniques Optimization”. It focuses on the role of glutamatergic neurotransmission in the etiopathogenesis of depressive disorders and reviews the current neuroimaging, neurophysiological and clinical evidence of these neuromodulation techniques in the pathophysiology and treatment of depression.

Dr. Chapa Koloffon from Mexico stated, “this would not have been possible without the OMI”. We are thrilled to see fellows working together, extending their knowledge, career, and interests for the betterment of the medical community worldwide. The OMI family is proud of you, Dr. Chapa Koloffon, Dr. Khoodoruth, and Dr. Nyundo! Keep up the great work!
