Spanish doctor and pioneer in the disciplines of Hematology and Hemotherapy. He created the first transfusion service in the world in Barcelona in 1936 at the beginning of the Spanish Civil War. Previously there were blood banks, where donated blood to be transfused was stored. Dr. Durán-Jordà created a methodology that would serve to collect massive blood donations and be transfused across distance, in this case the front lines of the Spanish Civil War. This method was subsequently applied in World War II.

He died in Manchester, United Kingdom, on 30 March 1957, aged 51.
