(1873-1944) US surgeon born in France, whose experiments paved the way for organ transplants. Working at the Rockefeller Institute, New York City, he devised a way of joining blood vessels end to end (anastomosing). This was a key move in the development of transplant surgery, as was his work on keeping organs viable outside the body, for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine 1912.
