About John Hanes
John C. Hanes (1975-2020), a native of Dallas, Texas, earned his B.S. in biology from Indiana University Bloomington in 1997. He served as Director of Engineering Security for Eli Lilly until he lost his battle with cancer.
His parents and wife established the scholarship to honor him and to help support the academic endeavors of department's undergraduate premed students—especially those with an interest in gastrointestinal or liver cancer research (including early detection, treatment, or potential cure).
