Description:
Francis Daniels Moore (April 17, 1913 in Evanston, Illinois - November 24, 2001 in Westwood, Massachusetts) was an American surgeon who was a pioneer in numerous experimental surgical treatments. Among his many achievements, he refined burn-treatment techniques, helped perform the world's first successful organ transplant (which involved a kidney), and accurately determined the volume of water and other nutrients in the human body using radioactive isotopes of those substances.

He was awarded the 1978 Lister Medal for his contributions to surgical science. The corresponding Lister Oration, given at the Royal College of Surgeons of England, was delivered on 23 May 1979, and was titled 'Science and service'.
