Dorothy E. “Dottie” Thomas, known as the “mother of bone marrow transplantation” for the years she spent working as a research partner alongside her husband, Nobel prize-winning Dr. E. Donnall Thomas, died Friday at her home near Seattle. She was 92.
The Thomases formed the core of a team who proved that bone marrow transplantation could cure leukemias and other blood cancers, work that spanned several cities, research institutions and decades.
