The EBMT acknowledged the work that stems from the pioneering observations made by E. Donnall Thomas, also known as the father of bone marrow transplantation and who received the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1990. For over 60 years Thomas’ colleagues and fellows, not only in the United States but also in Europe and worldwide, have worked relentlessly in preclinical and clinical research to develop innovative treatments that improve the outcome and quality of life for cancer patients.

At the Opening Session, Rainer Storb from the faculty of both, the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and the University of Washington School of Medicine, gave a keynote lecture entitled, “60 years of HSCT: progress from bone marrow transplantation to the first cellular and gene therapies.”
