Frank Netter worked with the medical giants of his day illustrating the first open-heart surgical operations and the first organ transplants. CIBA Pharmaceutical Company and its successor CIBA-GEIGY (now Novartis) sponsored his drawings for over 50 years. Francine's mother, also a medical doctor, grew up in Greensboro.
