Spotlight | Trustee Susanna E. Lachs
    Perhaps Susanna Lachs, J.D. ’78, was destined to be a trustee.
    After all, she grew up in a family where higher education was the family business. Her father was a congregational rabbi-turned-scholar who became a religion professor at Bryn Mawr College. Later her mother also joined Bryn Mawr’s faculty as a history professor.

Research Notes


This Week in Temple History
May 7, 1981

  On May 3, a team led by Temple surgeon Jacob Kloff successfully implanted an artificial heart into a neurologically dead patient. The heart functioned for several hours in the subject, an anonymous woman who had died just an hour before the operation.
  Though in 1969 Denton Cooley of the Texas Heart Institute had kept a living patient alive for 60 hours with an artificial heart, the procedure was intended only to sustain the patient until a natural heart was found; Kloff’s focus, however, was on those patients who would not receive a natural transplant, and for whom the artificial heart would be permanent. He would go on to oversee more than 100 transplants at Temple Hospital.
