Thomas Earl Starzl (March 11, 1926 – March 4, 2017) was an American physician, researcher, and expert on organ transplants. He performed the first human liver transplants and has often been referred to as “the father of modern transplantation.” In recognition of his many contributions and to honor his legacy, the Thomas Starzl Memorial lecture has become a permanent feature of IHPBA’s biennial World Congress.
We are honoured that Professor Satoru Todo from Japan will give the Thomas Starzl lecture at the 2020 World Congress.
