The Medical Humanities and Health Studies Program’s 2014 Spring Seminar Series will host a lecture from an internationally renowned cancer researcher at the IU School of Medicine.

Lawrence H. Einhorn, M.D., IUPUI Distinguished Professor and Lance Armstrong Foundation Professor of Oncology at the IU School of Medicine, is widely regarded as the physician who cured testicular cancer in 95 percent of cases through a revolutionary chemotherapy regimen seen as responsible for a dramatic improvement in what previously had been a devastating and rapidly fatal disease. Dr. Einhorn is also a researcher with the IU Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center.

Co-sponsored by the John Shaw Billings History of Medicine Society, the IU Student History of Medicine Organization and Medical Humanities and Health Studies.
