Dr. Patrick J. Loehrer Sr. has been named director of the Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center.

Loehrer replaces Dr. Stephen D. Williams, the center’s founding director, who died of cancer in February 2009.
 
Pending approval by IU’s trustees, Loehrer also will serve as the IU School of Medicine’s associate dean for cancer research and hold the title HH Gregg Professor of Oncology.
 
Loehrer, who joined the IU faculty in 1990, focuses his research and care on testicular cancer, gastrointestinal cancer and thymoma. He has been deputy director of the IU Simon Cancer Center since 2006.

The Simon Cancer Center has more than 220 physicians and researchers in Indianapolis working to find better ways to prevent, detect and treat cancer. The center is best known for its advances in treatments for breast and testicular cancers.
 
Loehrer earned his medical degree from Rush Medical College in Chicago in 1978. He and his wife Deborah reside in Indianapolis. They have three adult children.

  1. I am so impressed that the smoking ban FAILED in Kokomo! I might just move to your Awesome city!

  2. way to much breweries being built in indianapolis. its going to be saturated market, if not already. when is enough, enough??

  3. This house is a reminder of Hamilton County history. Its position near the interstate is significant to remember what Hamilton County was before the SUPERBROKERs, Navients, commercial parks, sprawling vinyl villages, and acres of concrete retail showed up. What's truly Wasteful is not reusing a structure that could still be useful. History isn't confined to parks and books.

  4. To compare Connor Prairie or the Zoo to a random old house is a big ridiculous. If it were any where near the level of significance there wouldn't be a major funding gap. Put a big billboard on I-69 funded by the tourism board for people to come visit this old house, and I doubt there would be any takers, since other than age there is no significance whatsoever. Clearly the tax payers of Fishers don't have a significant interest in this project, so PLEASE DON'T USE OUR VALUABLE MONEY. Government money is finite and needs to be utilized for the most efficient and productive purposes. This is far from that.

  5. I only tried it 2x and didn't think much of it both times. With the new apts plus a couple other of new developments on Guilford, I am surprised it didn't get more business. Plus you have a couple of subdivisions across the street from it. I hope Upland can keep it going. Good beer and food plus a neat environment and outdoor seating.
