AMPATH, the Academic Model Providing Access to Healthcare, is a global partnership of universities and medical centers working together to build holistic, sustainable health in Kenya and around the world.

The 2019 Steven C. Beering Award will be presented to George R. Stark, PhD, a cancer biology researcher from the Cleveland Clinic. Stark will present his lecture, ‘The two faces of interferon: is our major antiviral defense mechanism a friend or a foe in cancer?’ at this event with a reception to follow.
The IU School of Medicine Steven C. Beering Award honors an internationally recognized individual for outstanding research contributions to the advancement of biomedical or clinical science. The Beering Award was established in 1983, honoring the important contributions Steven C. Beering, MD made to the IU School of Medicine as its dean from 1974 to 1983. Beering was the youngest dean appointed to the School of Medicine. He went on to become the president of Purdue University, serving until his retirement on August 14th, 2000. The creation of the award was announced on June 24th, 1983 and the award is presented annually and consists of a medal and a prize of $25,000. Seven of the past Beering Award recipients have become Nobel laureates, either before or after receipt of this award.
