The article that changed one cancer researcher's career path

Nov 14, 2017

Dr. Fred Appelbaum started his career in the 1970s when leukemia patients were given months to live. He worked with Dr. Don Thomas, a researcher at Fred Hutch who pioneered bone marrow transplantation. The procedure was considered radical at the time, but it would save tens of thousands of lives and change the course of cancer treatment.

In this interview, Appelbaum remembers how he first learned about Thomas’ compelling work while reading an article.
