A founder of the Division, Dr. Glen Lehman, transformed IU Gastro's advanced endoscopy presence worldwide. For over 30 years, Dr. Lehman heavily involved himself in training and teaching fellows, including those from more than 15 countries worldwide. His academic legacy includes numerous high-profile publications, book chapters, and hundreds of invited talks and presentations in the U.S. and internationally. He has received several distinguished awards, notably the Rudolf Schindler Award, the most prestigious awards presented by the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy. In 2007, the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at IU established the Glen A. Lehman Professorship of Gastroenterology. Dr. Stuart Sherman, a mentee of Dr. Lehman who has also gained wide international recognition in the field of endoscopy, became the first recipient of this professorship.
