 Details:
 Sherry, who is known throughout the world for his research on thrombosis and other blood-clotting diseases, has been with Temple University School of Medicine since 1968. In 1970 he established the Thrombosis Research Center, one of the foremost centers for treatment and research of arterial and venous thrombosis and hemorrhagic diseases in the world. Sherry's pioneering work on thrombolytic therapy has revolutionized the immediate treatment of acute myocardial infarction.
 In naming the Thrombosis Research Center after Sherry, Temple University wishes to honor him for his many contributions to Temple University Hospital and School of Medicine.
 Other activities associated with the dedication include a scientific symposium from 9 a.m. until noon, a wine and cheese reception after the dedication, and a black-tie dinner at Temple's Sugarloaf Conference Center that evening.
 During his 23 years at Temple, Sherry has brought international attention to the School of Medicine for his research, teaching and concern for patient care. In 1983 he was awarded a gold medal at the International Congress on Thrombosis and Haemostasis in Stockholm for his "invaluable contributions to the field of thrombolytic therapy."
 Also in 1983, Sherry received the Distinguished Achievement Award of the Scientific Councils of the American Heart Association.
 Temple University also recognized Sherry's "monumental contributions to the medical school, the hospital, the university and the world of medicine" when he was named by Temple University President Peter J. Liacouras the university's first Distinguished Professor.
 Note: Interviews with Sherry may be arranged.
