DeYoung appointed to Stamler Professorship

Barry DeYoung, clinical professor of pathology in the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine, has been appointed to the Frederic W. Stamler Professorship in Anatomical Pathology. The five-year appointment was effective July 1.

The professorship honors the long-standing dedication and service of Frederic W. Stamler, M.D., a former UI professor of pathology who passed away in 2004. Stamler was a diagnostic pathologist, teacher and faculty member in the department for more than 40 years until his retirement in 1989.

The professorship was endowed by private gifts made through the UI Foundation by Stamler’s family, friends, colleagues, and former trainees.

DeYoung is director of surgical pathology at the University. He is nationally recognized for his work on improving diagnostic accuracy of tests used to assess cancers. The appointment recognizes DeYoung’s dedication and contributions to teaching and service in the department.

DeYoung earned a medical degree at the Georgetown University School of Medicine and completed residency training in anatomic pathology at Barnes Hospital. He also completed fellowships in surgical pathology at Barnes Hospital and at University of Virginia Health Science Center.
