Title: A Cure for Germ Cell Cancer

Lawrence H. Einhorn, M.D., a living legend in the field of medical oncology, developed a cure for testicular cancer. In 1973, when he arrived at the Indiana University School of Medicine—where he now is a distinguished professor—testicular cancer was the leading cause of cancer death among young men. Einhorn developed a chemotherapy treatment that has saved countless patients, including Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong. A former president of the American Society of Clinical Oncology and the first clinical investigator inducted into the National Academy of Sciences, Einhorn has changed how doctors treat many cancers, and he’s a true hero to the thousands of men who are alive today because of his work.
