This site commemorates the pioneering basic, clinical and translational research that laid the foundation for successful cardiac transplantation. On this campus, Dr. Richard Lower performed the first heart transplant in Virginia on May 25, 1968. Modern-day research in transplantation medicine continues to flourish at the VCU Medical Center, as does organ transplantation at the Hume-Lee Transplant Center and cardiac transplantation at the Pauley Heart Center.
