Dr. Ernst A. Rodin (1925-2017) was internationally known for his work in epilepsy and was actively publishing and submitting new research papers until the day before his passing in February 2017. Dr. Rodin was a true renaissance man, always questioning and testing himself and others in order to improve people’s lives. In an award acceptance address in 2014, he spoke directly to the younger generation of physicians and said "Ars longa vita brevis, and . . . brand new information will not be welcomed with open arms." To follow new ideas and concepts, Dr. Rodin believe that one always should keep an open mind, be skeptical, but never cynical.
The mark Dr. Rodin has left on the neurosciences, especially in the areas related to analysis of EEG and MEG brain signals, is indelible and will long live as a testament to his unfailing dedication to the field. He was especially encouraging to young clinical investigators who wanted to try out a new technique or gather new data.
To further his mission and to insure that his remarkable contributions will not be forgotten, the American Clinical MEG Society (ACMEGS) and the American Clinical Neurophysiology Society (ACNS) have jointly established the ACMEGS/ACNS Ernst A. Rodin Distinguished Fellowship. The fellowship will be awarded annually, pending receipt of qualified applications, and will be structured as a scientific observership, followed by a travel grant to attend the ACNS/ ACMEGS Annual Meetings:
