Title:  First Annual Michael E. DeBakey Lecture in the History of Medicine
 
Description:  Western University’s McKellar and Baylor’s Noon to speak about the legacy of Michael E. DeBakey as it exists in modern medical practice and in the ongoing public service of the National Library of Medicine.

Michael E. DeBakey (1908–2008) was a legendary American surgeon, educator, medical statesman, and one of most stalwart supporters of the National Library of Medicine. During a career spanning 75 years, his work transformed cardiovascular surgery, raised medical education standards, and informed national health care policy. He pioneered dozens of operative procedures such as aneurysm repair, coronary bypass, and endarterectomy, which routinely save thousands of lives each year, and performed some of the first heart transplants. His inventions included the roller pump (a key component of heart-lung machines) as well as artificial hearts and ventricular assist pumps. He was a driving force in building Houston’s Baylor University College of Medicine into a premier medical center, where he trained several generations of top surgeons from all over the world.

Dr. DeBakey played a pivotal role in the creation of the National Library of Medicine in the 1950s, and in the establishment of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine in the 1960s. As a visionary member and chair of the NLM Board of Regents and several other NLM advisory panels, DeBakey made countless contributions to the Library which live on today.
