Organ Transplant Pioneers Celebrate Baylor Regional Transplant Institute's 25th Anniversary
Date:11/27/2009

was hosted by Baylor Health Care System Foundation. The event was co-chaired by former Baylor Health Care System president and chief executive officer Boone Powell Jr. along with John Fordtran, M.D., Ph.D. Both Mr. Powell and Dr. Fordtran were instrumental in the creation of BRTI in 1984. The invocation was given by Norm Bagwell, chairman and chief executive officer of Bank of Texas, who himself was a kidney transplant patient at Baylor. Mr. Bagwell's wife, Robin, donated her kidney for his treatment.

"It was especially poignant to me to celebrate BRTI on Veteran's Day," said Bagwell. "Veteran's Day is about remembering those who chose to sacrifice for others in life and in death. This day was about honoring all those who unselfishly gave of themselves to save others."

"Organ transplantation is a perfect example of Winston Churchill's quote, 'We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.' Whether it is donating an organ or donating the funds to support future research, we are creating a way for our lives to affect others in a deeply profound way," said Rowland K. Robinson, president of Baylor Health Care System Foundation.

Dr. Goran Bo Klintmalm, M.D., Ph.D., the director of BRTI since its inception, was honored on Wednesday for his leadership at Baylor and in the field of transplantation. Dr. Klintmalm also co-authored the authoritative textbook on liver transplantation.

Notable attendees included Dr. Starzl, who performed the world's first successful liver transplant; Sir Roy Calne, who pioneered the use of the anti-rejection drug cyclosporine, significantly increasing transplant survival rates; and Ronald Busuttil, M.D., Ph.D., who co-authored the textbook on liver transplantation with Dr. Klintmalm.

Attendees also included transplant pioneers such as Carl Groth, M.D., Ph.D., of Sweden, Dr. Klintmalm's mentor; Suzanne McDiarmid, M.D., considered a thought leader in pediatric liver trans
