James A. Lemons, M.D.
School of Medicine
The Last Lecture Series offers the university community the opportunity to hear reflections on life’s lessons and meaning from a current or retired IUPUI colleague of exceptional merit. Each speaker will share the wisdom gained from past experiences and distill a life of inquiry, reflection, and service into important guidance for successive generations.
James A. Lemons is Hugh McK. Landon Professor of Pediatrics emeritus and past director of neonatal-perinatal medicine at the Indiana University School of Medicine. He has developed major research programs in fetal and neonatal metabolism with continuous NIH funding and other grant support for over 30 years. Under his leadership, the neonatal-perinatal section has burgeoned and acquired a faculty with unrivaled, internationally recognized clinical, teaching, and research accomplishments in stem cell biology, fetal and neonatal metabolism, clinical and translational research, and international health care research. His areas of focus include women’s and children’s issues, and he remains actively engaged in supporting the School of Medicine’s ongoing partnership with the Riley Mother and Baby Hospital of Kenya in Eldoret, Kenya, which he was instrumental in establishing.
