With great sadness and sorrow, we say a final goodbye to our friend and mentor, Professor Ze’ev Hochberg. Great intellect and intuition of a world-class scientist, diligence, drive, and skill in sharing knowledge, ability to foster cooperation despite divisions and differences, and selfless help are just of few of his characteristics. He worked with and considered as his mentors, Robert Richman, Judson Van Wyk, and Lytt Gardner, students of Lawson Wilkin.
By most of us, he is remembered as the leader of the European Society for Paediatric Endocrinology (ESPE) where he served as ESPE President. Most of the ESPE activities and initiatives were connected with Ze’ev Hochberg, he was the founder and organizer of both ESPE Winter School and ESPE Summer School. As the Secretary General of Global Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes, he supported endocrinology in developing countries. In a book published over 10 years ago, called ESPE-The First 50 Years, among those involved in creating an international community of pediatric endocrinologists, his name was mentioned the most. For his lifetime of achievement, he was honored by EPSE with the prestigious Andrea Prader Prize. His students continue the work he started in a variety of ESPE bodies.
We knew and valued His commitment to advancing knowledge, determination in searching, and constant striving to uncover the mechanisms of the most complicated endocrinopathies. For many years, as the Editor in Chief of the Yearbook in Pediatric Endocrinology he charted the leading course of research.
He supported our Society and was awarded an Honorary Membership. He has been a guest lecturer at PTEiDD congresses many times. Most of our community had the opportunity to meet Him personally. I had the privilege of being his student. We met several years ago while working on a project on Turner syndrome, which resulted in a publication in JCEM. In 2010, I had the opportunity to stay in the center run by Him in Haifa (Israel) on a nearly one-year scholarship, which initiated many years of cooperation and resulted in joint international publications, recognized by our Society.
On behalf of the PTEiDD community, I bid farewell to Professor Hochberg and thank Him for His contribution to the development of Polish endocrinology of developmental age. I say goodbye to my Friend and Teacher, thanking Him for inspiration, motivation, sharing out-of-the-box ideas, wise life advice, and finally for jars of delicious...
