Science on Screen®: Burden of Genius

Featuring a Q&A with Dr. Abhinav Humar and Dr. Velma Scantlebury
Beyond the Burden: Building on the Transplant Revolution
Sat., April 13 at 4 pm

Starzl laid the groundwork for a revolution that will continue to change medicine for generations. Dr. Abhinav Humar and Dr. Velma Scantlebury will discuss how many of the challenges Starzl faced continue to inform the field, what the future of transplantation and immunology will look like, and how it will change our world.

About the speakers:

Humar is the Clinical Director of the Thomas E. Starzl Transplantation Institute and the Chief, Division of Transplantation in the Department of Surgery at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Formerly the Director of the University of Minnesota’s Liver Transplant Program, Humar has continued to build on Starzl’s pioneering work since coming to Pittsburgh, making history recently through his work teaching the body to accept new organs using immune cells to free patients from complications produced by anti-rejection drugs.

Scantlebury was a Starzl fellow in Pittsburgh in the 1980s and is the first African American woman transplant surgeon in the U.S. She has received many honors in her career having been named to both the Best Doctors in America and Top Doctors in America lists multiple times. Scantlebury has been awarded the Woman of Spirit Award for inspiring others and the Gift of Life Award from the National Kidney Foundation. She has performed over 2,000 transplants and published many peer-reviewed papers as well as a new book, “Beyond Every Wall” which begins with her meeting Starzl.
