Equally driven as a clinician and researcher, Amrita Krishnan, M.D. was instrumental in bringing successful transplant therapy to HIV patients with lymphoma, when many believed such patients were too weak to tolerate the procedure.
 
“We have patients who had been told to get their affairs in order,” she says. “Years later, they are still here.”
