TERRY STROM M.D.
STROM, Terry, M.D. Of Brookline, a leader in the field of immune tolerance research, died from complications after a bone marrow transplant, on December 20, 2017. Beloved husband of Margot Stern Strom. Devoted father of Adam Strom (Sandy Smith-Garcés) and Rachel Fan Stern Strom (Rinze van Brug). Cherished grandfather of Max, Sam, Ries, and Liev. Dear brother of Michael Strom (Sherry) and Susan Mogerman (Jay). Dr. Strom was raised on the south side of Chicago where he attended South Shore High School, and, after a traumatic football injury and brain surgery, went on to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he met his wife, and then University of Illinois Medical School at Chicago – Class of 1966. He served as the Chief of Immunology at Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital and a Professor of Medicine and Surgery at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Strom was the recipient of the Thomas E. Starzl Prize in Surgery and Immunology, the Alfred Newton Richards Award from the International Society of Nephrology, and the Mentoring Award from the American Society of Transplantation, having mentored and trained over 100 young scientists. He had active grants from the National Institute of Health with over 700 manuscripts in the fields of immunology and transplantation. Dr. Strom was a founding member and past president of both the American Society of Transplantation and the Clinical Immunology Society. He was larger than life, a lover of the Boston Celtics, wine, and most of all, his family.

My late husband, Dr. Norman K. Hollenberg, a friend and colleague of Terry's, heard that Terry was in BWH for a bone marrow transplant as he was leaving his office. He insisted that he go up to see Terry right away. I heard them reminisce with love, then suddenly, they began to cry. . Norm loved you, Terry.

As a young transplant surgeon just out of fellowship training 20 years ago, Terry was a great mentor. Long after I left Harvard, we remained collaborators, but more importantly, friends. As true genius/giants are, he was humble and genuine. I miss him and think of him frequently.

I remember some incredible presentations at national meetings when as a "pup" in the field, I was learning from one of the masters. As my knowledge grew and my stature, Terry remained one of the most approachable scientists in transplant immunology. But my most personal memory was that he attended my AST presidential dinner in Seattle. We had an amazing venue at the Chihuly Museum. At the end of my welcome speech and after thanking many of the Society for their guidance and support, Terry was the first to stand and lead applause. It was a moment, probably the only during that busy and difficult year, that I felt most appreciated knowing it was his honest assessment, as he wasn't one to give faint praise. He was a scientific treasure and mentor!

When Terry lectured or taught a group of fellows, you always felt it was more of a conversation than a talk. Always willing to share, he was always there when I had a question. He also had wonderful wine selections. I owe much of what was my foundation in transplantation and wine to one of the kindest mentors I ever had. His passsing was a loss for all of academia.

Dear Margot, Rachel and Adam,

I would like to express my condolences to you about Terry, very, very sad.
I was a research fellow from Germany in his lab from 1989-1991.
A wonderful unforgettable time, his contagious humor, his fabulous intellect, his passion in research, his kindness, his free spirit in thinking and political cultural discussion , his joy about life and the Boston Celtics...
He build an international network between his research fellows. This is how I heard about the sad news and find comments of my former colleagues.
He had a big holistic impact on all of us.
Thank you for this part of my life and you Margot for your hospitality at those times.
A lot of strength in theses sad times to the Strom family
I am sure Terry is reading from somewhere...
In deep sadness and memory of our short conversation at the ASN in 2016.

Many many years have passed since I had the privilege of working in the lab with Terry and sharing the 'box' at the Celtics. Having been removed thousands of miles and dozens of years I missed the sad news last December. To Terry's family I need not tell you how great and good this man was, for me he was a mentor and friend and I am today heartbroken to hear of his passing. My love to all, Mark Reddish (in the lab 76-81)

Dear Margot and family:

As I know it must be so for all of you, it is hard for me to believe that Terry is gone, no longer in our lives. As infrequently as we saw each other, it was always with great anticipation that I would await his arrival on those occasions when we planned to be together on one of his trips to Chicago. And, then, once we were together we being the boys, Terry, Joel, Bill, Bob, and me the years would melt away and we would become not just boys reliving a moment of our youth but the good friends that we were, undiluted and suspended in time. And we would laugh about Terry's shorts being split during a high school league basketball game or about his invincibility as proven by his survival of two holes being drilled into his head or about the adventures that we would always keep secret. We were the boys that will be boys. And we loved each other. So, I speak not just about Terry but about us. Losing him is like losing that part that made us us, so that now we speak of us in the past tense, as well. Others will speak of his accomplishments. What is most meaningful to me is his essence – that combination of will and intelligence and fortitude, of doubt, hope and fear, and the sense of self and place in the universe that finally coalesced into the man that the world would come to know and admire. I will always miss him.

Share these sentiments with the grand kids, too. I send to all of you the love that I would have Terry know,

I was saddened to hear about Terry's death. We met when we were both starting our careers at the Brigham. We wrote papers together, spent many evenings around the world immersed in science (lubricated with some good wines), and I considered him a personal friend and respected colleague.

Dear Strom Family,

It is with a truly heavy heart that I learned today of the passing of Dr. Strom. He was a wonderful colleague and a world-eminent immunologist, but, most of all, he was a true gentleman and exemplary role-model as a person and as a clinician-scientist. I hope you will find some comfort in knowing that he was uniformly cherished by his colleagues, and we thank all of you for sharing him with us. He devoted his life to overcoming the ignorance that plagues clinical transplantation, and, clearly, that battle still remains to be won. His passing now serves as a personal inspiration for me -- and others -- to continue this battle with even greater intensity. We will continue his noble mission to improve outcomes for all transplant patients, and, in so doing, bring the proper honor to his remarkable legacy.

We are so lucky to have known him and cherish those memories!

Margot and family,
I just heard today about Terry and wanted to reach out to you to offer my deepest condolences to all of you. We go back so far that it's difficult to express everything I feel. I knew Terry in college, when we were all friends in Chicago during and the guys were at Illinois Med, when you visited Barry and I in SF while you were in the service and then when we were all in Boston. Terry was always such a huge dynamic presence. And more recently he and I corresponded and he was kind and caring.
He touched so many lives and he'll be missed all over the globe, but the ones most affected are all of you. Hopefully, knowing that so many people have such wonderful memories of him will give you some comfort in this difficult time. Love from far away.

Dear Margot and Family
I am deeply saddened about your loss, and if it serves of any consolation, please be reasured that the feeling is very widely shared. It is very hard to be involved in Transplantation and not have known of Terry, heard a lot about him or even personally interact with him. Lately, we were collaborating in a research project through Prof Steven Sacks and for this we managed to drag him or the both of you to London from time to time. Those meetings were always inspirational and Terry managed to enthuse the team significantly to continue working. The "KALIBRE" team (Chow, Mano, Sofia, Paula, Irene, Florence, Tsui, etc, etc) send their best wishes to all of you. He will be sadly missed.

We were friends, good friends, 46-8 years ago when we served as physicians at MacDill AFB, during the Vietnam Nam War.
We had many wonderful experiences together given basketball, he a power forward, me an Asst. Coach.
Mostly he was so easy to love as a friend, gentle, smart, fun, interested, warm.

We first met Terry and Margot in 1985 when Paul was working on a Fulbright Exchange at Brookline High School. They adopted us and our three children - Matthew, Rebecca and Sophie - spoiling us with wonderful feasts and legendary bottles of wine, lending us their car and introducing us to parts of Boston life and the glorious Celtics we would never have found with out them. And in addition to all these treats and fun we loved our political talks and Margot's and Terry's analyses of what is going on in America, for good and ill. The most recent of these was in June 2017 when, in addition to talk about family and politics, Terry told us about the dozens of books he was reading. This was not just a hugely gifted doctor. This was an extraordinary man, with a wonderful and interesting family. He enlarged and enriched our lives; and we miss him so much.

We send our love to Margot and to Adam and Rachel.

This is a photo of the Abelson first cousins at a reunion a few years ago. While we were dispersed between Boston, Springfield, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Diego, there has always been a special bond because family was so important to the Abelson siblings. When those of us who lived in Chicago at the time were young, my father and Elliot's father Elliot is standing next to Terry) took the 2 boys to museums and parks over the weekend. The older boys didn't pay much attention to me since I was a girl in the middle, but they did manage to tease me and I always loved it when we were together and listened to stories told by our parents about their family and their tough, extremely short but mighty father who was probably half the size of Terry! I have so much respect for Terry's intellect, accomplishments, love of family and sense of humor. I miss him!

Dear Margot,

Just heard the sad news. I was a fellow in Terry's laboratory in the early 90's.

I learnt so much from Terry; not just about transplant and about Immunology, but about life in general.

Terry was singlehandedly responsible for getting me my first job in this country and so I owe him my career.

He was a giant in his field but more importantly a good and wonderful human being.

He will be truly missed.

To Dr Strom's Family -
I am so sorry to hear the sad news of Dr. Strom's passing and am so sorry for your loss. My deepest sympathies to your family. I was a patient of Dr Strom's starting after college when I moved to Boston from Philadelphia 33 years ago until he retired from seeing patients. He told me I was one of his last few patients. He advised me through many years of Post kidney transplant life before transitioning me to the care of one of his many mentees. He encouraged and monitored me closely through the births of two healthy daughters. He was a wonderful doctor - outstanding in his field, kind and patient. I admired him and will miss him dearly.

To Terry's family- My utmost sympathy and best wishes.

I met Terry for the first time in Dec 1974 when I was at NIH and Terry was starting at BI. We sat together at a banquet for an Immunology Conference. Terry was smart and incredibly funny. He mentioned to me that if he was successful he wanted to be the Nathan's Coney Island Professor of Immunology at Harvard. We served on many study sections together and his insight, knowledge, and generosity were incredible. He never lost sight of the practical importance of good work and science, his and others, to people and those afflicted with many diverse disorders. In the 1980's when I was working at Tufts we collaborated and then competed for a while and it had no effect on our friendship as the truth was the real goal. Terry was a real mensch as others have said and his impact will be missed.

Terry was a man of great intellect who thought outside the box. His expansive knowledge, interests, and passions transcended science and included just about any topic you cared to discuss.
His professional contributions are legion and stand on their own, but I will remember mostly as a genuine mensch.
It was a privilege to have crossed paths with him. He will be sadly missed.

We are sending our love and deepest sorrow on the passing of dear Terry. He was an amazing family man, physician, researcher, and mentor to all in the humblest way. With his busy schedule, he always had time for our parents and whole family to help with whatever was needed.
Several years ago when Rita was very ill, Terry coordinated the top doctors in the field to perform the needed surgeries. He would visit often, and each time with his gentle manner and great smile, Terry would light up the room and make us feel better. Terry was truly one of a kind, and the definition of a real Mensch. He will be sorely missed.

Giants in all branches of human endeavor, and especially in science, mark their brilliance by rearranging the architecture of their discipline and in so doing chart new horizons for those who follow. Terry Strom's contributions to immunology and transplantation provide ample validation of this belief. His family, colleagues and friends can be justly proud of his achievements and for the great, good fortune of having been touched by him.

Terry was a wonderful mentor, colleague and friend to me at BIDMC over the years, when I moved to the 6th floor of the CLS in 2009 to set up my lab. He welcomed my group. He very generously shared his passion for research, and pride and love for his family. He also always took incredible pride in showing the beautiful photos/artwork of and from his children in his office. I remembered when I first met him how much he loved to run. He enjoyed sharing stories about his encounters outside of science. He always had a huge grin! In the last few years, he showed incredible strength in his battles to regain his health. He was indeed a powerhouse and will be sorely missed!

With my deepest condolences to his family.

We are deeply saddened. We admire Terry for his achievements but also for his warm personality. Our discussions about science and wine were most inspiring. We will miss him.

I remember helping Terry during the creation of the ASTP and visiting with him at many of the early meetings in Chicago. He has left a great legacy of achievements in Transplant immunology.

Margot, Adam, Rachael,
So sorry for your pain and the loss of Terry. He helped a lot of people, including my dad. We are, and always have been, grateful for the help he provided my father, using his knowledge, pressing his contacts, and getting him the ultimate in care and treatment. My dad lived much longer than he probably would have as a result. Good luck to all of you-

Dear Margot,

I am very sad to hear the news.

I always enjoyed our conversations whether scientific or political...We sometimes agreed and sometimes disagreed but invariably these interactions were invigorating and always ended with laughs. He certainly had passion for everything he did...and he always showed it. I feel sorry that I have not seen him as often since his lab moved out from Research North.

My thoughts are with you and your family.

Warm regards

I am deeply saddened by Terry's passing.
I came to Terry's lab in 1996 as a fellow and worked together for almost 16 years. Terry was like no other in my career and we had great time in science. Terry was always excited by ideas and genuinely interested in finding answers to important questions. He was an incredible force in shaping my career and always had great insights in transplant immunology; he was also a driving force behind many things in our transplant community. Above all, Terry was a very special man, kind and generous to all of us. He will be surely missed.

Dear Margot and Family,
With heavy hearts we want to express our feelings of love and caring for all you. When we think of Terry, the image that stands out most is his ability to empathize with and relate to people from all walks of life, anywhere, any time. From playing basketball together, to discussing jazz and all types of music including South Side Chicago Blues Bars, to enjoying all kinds of wines, to sipping champagne and humbly thinking about his remarkable career having received such well deserved international accolades, he was a real man and a true lover of humanity who taught us much and whom we will never forget.
Our love and hugs to you,
Mike and Carol Sarche
