The Klingenstein Third Generation Foundation Fellows

The Foundation has selected its fellows from a highly competitive cohort of candidates. These fellows come from esteemed medical institutions across the country, and the vast majority of them have continued in the field of child and adolescent psychiatry and psychology. They continue to produce important research, win government and other grants, and they publish their findings in widely read and respected publications.

It is the Foundation’s hope that over time, our Fellows become leaders in the field, that they address the pressing need for research about child and adolescent mental health, and that they encourage M.D. and Ph.D. students to follow in their paths.
