Dr. Lawrence Einhorn is recognized internationally as one of the most renowned and revered physician/scientists in his field; thousands owe their lives to him. His pioneering work in the development of a curative treatment for testicular cancer, the most common cancer in young men, has yielded a 95% survival rate among those patients seeking treatment at major medical centers.
Beyond testicular cancer, Dr. Einhorn is a recognized authority on other types of urologic cancer, lung cancer, and certain other tumors and is sought out by cancer patients and fellow physicians worldwide. He treated famed Olympic cyclist, Lance Armstrong, who went on to win the coveted Tour de France, consecutively from 1999 through 2005.
Dr. Einhorn was also elected to membership in the National Academy of Sciences. This elite organization was established in 1863 by a congressional act (signed by Abraham Lincoln) that calls on the Academy to act as an official adviser to the federal government in any matter of science or technology. Election to this organization is considered one of the highest honors that can be accorded an American scientist or engineer. It recognizes the memberâ€™s distinguished and continuing achievements in original research.
Family, friends, colleagues, and humor are an important part of Dr. Einhornâ€™s own prescription for a happy life. He is a doctor with an enviable bedside manner.
At the I.U. School of Medicine, medical students and residents recognize Dr. Einhorn as an excellent teacher. In fact, his dedication to the training program in hematology/oncology has stimulated nearly 50% percent of all trainees to become physicians active in research and education, just like their mentor, with many of his protÃ©gÃ©s becoming nationally respected physicians in their own right.
