Sergei Sergeyevich Yudin (1891-1954), Russian-Soviet surgeon. Yudin pioneered the storage and use of blood from cadavers for transfusion. In establishing blood could be stored, Yudin could then perform serological and bacteriological tests to ensure the blood was healthy to be infused. Despite his achievements and popularity, Yudin was arrested by the KGB in 1948 and exiled to Siberia. He was held without trial and his name was erased from medical journals and his publications were destroyed. On the death of Stalin in 1953 Yudin returned to Moscow, but within a year he died of a heart attack.
