Columbia University Receives $200m for Neuroscience Research
Columbia University announced today that it has received a record-setting $200 million gift that the school will use to establish a research center to study brain function, university leaders. The gift is the largest in Columbia's history. The donation was arranged by the widow of prominent alumnus Jerome L. Greene, who attended Columbia in the 1920s and went on to a career in law, real estate and philanthropy. The Jerome L. Greene Science Center will be dedicated to studying a range of disorders including Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, autism and schizophrenia, Columbia President Lee Bollinger said. The center also will serve as an interdisciplinary hub of sorts - one that forges ties between areas of study ranging from law to arts to the hard sciences.
