Dean Pamela B. Davis presented Stanton L. Gerson, MD, with the Case Western Reserve Medal for excellence in health science innovation on Thursday, September 13, 2012.
The Case Western Reserve Medal, the highest honor bestowed by the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, acknowledges distinguished medical leaders whose contributions are truly moving the needle in research, cures and care. Case Western Reserve Medalists have a passion for people and inspire others to "go to the moon" as truly forward-thinking and collaborative visionaries in medicine.
Dr. Gerson was nominated for his successful leadership of pioneering research and clinical entities, including the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center, National Center for Regenerative Medicine, both based at Case Western Reserve University, and the Seidman Cancer Center at University Hospitals Case Medical Center. Through these organizations, Dr. Gerson has solidified unprecedented multi-institutional partnerships, including Case Western Reserve and affiliate hospitals University Hospitals, Cleveland Clinic and MetroHealth, that foster the translation of research discoveries from the lab into clinical practice.
In addition, Dr. Gerson, who is the Asa & Patricia Shiverick and Jane Shiverick (Tripp) Professor of Hematological Oncology, is recognized for his personal research endeavors in the areas of stem cell therapy and DNA repair - resulting in 12 patents in gene therapy and cancer drug development - balanced with time spent educating graduate students.
