From studies of early ambulation of surgical patients in the 1940’s, first human bone marrow transplants in the 1960’s, seminal work with serum proteins and dendritic cells in the 1980’s to occupational health and mechanisms of obesity and cancer in recent decades, scientists at Bassett have made meaningful contributions to our understanding of health and disease.
Bassett scientists E. Donnall Thomas, Joseph Ferrebee and David Blumenstock pioneered innovative research in bone marrow transplantation, performing the world’s first human organ transplant at Bassett in 1956. Dr. Thomas, who was Physician-in-Chief at Bassett from 1955 to 1963, received the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1990 for his work in transplantation.
Sports injury and related orthopaedic outcomes are being studied in the Bassett Shoulder and Sports Medicine Research Institute. The ready access to young baseball players in and about Cooperstown proves to be an important resource.
