Opening Session: Burden of Genius Movie Viewing
Monday, September 23, 2019

Burden of Genius plunges the viewer into the controversy swirling around Dr. Thomas Starzl’s turbulent 60-year career before we land in the 1980s, the decade when organ transplantation, the stuff of science fiction, becomes a reality. Accusations of blind career ambition collide with reflections from colleagues and patients who credit him with saving thousands of lives through his innovations in surgery and immunotherapy.
