The Karl G. Blume, MD Memorial Lectureship was established to honor Dr. Blume’s countless contributions to the field of blood and marrow transplantation, and to Stanford University and Stanford Hospital and Clinics.  The lectureship is held the second Wednesday of each April at Stanford University’s Department of Medicine Grand Rounds. 

Dr. Blume and his team conducted Stanford’s first successful Bone Marrow Transplant on  November 2, 1987. Today the program provides transplants to over 300 adult patients a year, with over 5,000 patients receiving transplants during the past  26 years. Tribute to Dr. Blume
