6481-Benson, Merrill

Dr. Merrill Benson


It is with a heavy heart that I share one of our faculty members, Dr. Merrill Benson, passed away. Dr. Benson’s work advanced the understanding and treatment of hereditary amyloidosis. Visitation will be held on Friday, September 17th from 10am-11am at the St. Monica Catholic Church (6131 Michigan Rd, Indianapolis, IN 46228). A funeral mass for family and close friends will be held immediately following the visitation. A memorial will be published in In-Scope and will be shared with the department once ready.

In lieu of flowers the family has requested that donations be made in his honor to support the continuation of his scientific legacy in amyloid research:
