The Official Dr. Thomas E. Starzl Web site is the gateway to information about the historic medical career of Thomas Earl Starzl, whose multiple innovations in surgery and immunology changed the face of modern medicine. The core of Dr. Starzl’s work is contained in the Thomas E. Starzl Papers, currently being processed at the University of Pittsburgh’s Archives Service Center. This material reflects over 50 years of groundbreaking work, including immense volumes of correspondence with fellow surgeons and grateful patients, presentations and publications from a hugely prolific career, information on his bestselling autobiography The Puzzle People, and much more. Once completed, the Thomas E. Starzl Papers will contain over 350 boxes of material documenting both his professional and personal life.

In addition, the University of Pittsburgh has taken further steps to preserve and advance the work of this pioneering surgeon. The entirety of Dr. Starzl’s list of publications—over 2200 articles in all—has been scanned and is available through Pitt’s D-Scholarship program, providing a digital repository for a man who has been identified by the International Scientific Institute as the most highly-cited author in the history of clinical medicine.

All of this examination of Dr. Starzl’s career has served to illustrate what a powerful and far-reaching impact his work has had on the development of medicine throughout the second half of the 20th and the beginning of the 21st centuries. Through medical, statistical, and archival research, his influence will continue to grow well into the future.
