Influential Emory urologist Fray F. Marshall is being honored with an endowed chair created by the Department of Urology in Emory School of Medicine. To date, eighty-five people—most of them grateful patients—have contributed to the fund.

“Fray Marshall embodies all of the things a named chair represents. He is a strong leader, an accomplished innovator, a compassionate clinician, and an exemplary educator,” says Thomas J. Lawley, dean of the School of Medicine.

The Fray F. Marshall Chair in Urology will be devoted to research. Marshall is the Ada Lee and Pete Correll Professor of Urology and chair of the Department of Urology.

“We have many new initiatives and plans that are possible because of the vision of Dr. Marshall, truly a giant not only in urology but in medicine,” says Associate Professor of Urology Chad Ritenour.

Among the fund’s contributors is Chuck Warren, who credits Marshall with saving his life. Warren chairs the department’s Board of Advisors. “Naming a research chair in honor of Fray Marshall is such an appropriate tribute to his career,” he says.
