HCRI Transitions

Dr. Craig Brater, Dean of the Indiana University School of Medicine (IUSM), has announced that Dr. Rudy Navari has stepped away from his position as Clinical Director of the Harper Cancer Research Institute (HCRI) to focus on clinical cancer research with the National Cancer Institute. Dr. Navari will continue as Associate Dean and Director of  IUSM South Bend and  the expansion of the medical education program.  The program will continue its successful and rapid growth of the M3 and M4 curriculum together with the addition of opportunities for resident physicians to receive training in the South Bend area. IUSM South Bend will begin a search soon for a physician scientist to serve as Associate Director of the HCRI for clinical research.


Dr. Brater, the HCRI community and the University of Notre Dame wish to thank Dr. Navari for his efforts during the Institute’s conception and formation. 


Dr. M. Sharon Stack, Professor of Chemistry & Biochemistry at the University of Notre Dame, will assume the title of Ann F. Dunne and Elizabeth Riley Director of the HCRI and will lead the HCRI programs.
