Joseph E. Murray and the Story of the First Human Kidney Transplant

Joseph Murray knew he wanted to be a surgeon from the time he was a small boy. A Harvard-educated doctor, he spent much of his life s work attempting to overcome the body s natural reaction to reject foreign tissues. His work eventually led to the first successful human kidney transplant in 1954, for which he won a Nobel Prize in 1990.
