Meet Research Grant Recipient: Santiago Gomez-Paz

Santiago Gomez-Paz is a Cerebrovascular Research Fellow at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. He is the recipient of the Boston Marathon Chair of Research for $25,000, and the Fight Like Frank Chair of Research for $5,000. His research project focuses on the effects of cigarette smoking on the formation of aneurysms in middle aged women. He hopes that his research will help define a demographic that should be recommended for precautionary brain aneurysm screening regardless of symptoms.

Santiago was born and raised in Panama. He earned his MD there and then came to the USA for postdoctoral training through the International Research Initiative in Boston. In his spare time, Santiago tries to be as active as possible. He is an avid runner, and loves to hike and lift weights as well.
