University of Minnesota looks back on organ transplant history
from Minnesota Daily
The University of Minnesota celebrated the 50th anniversary of its first successful transplant with a fundraiser gala and a patient education event. But a shortage of donors and a relatively isolated geographic location have created obstacles for the program. The university has a history of medical firsts, including the world's first successful pancreas transplant, the first use of a portable pacemaker in a patient and the first bone marrow transplant.
