M.D./Ph.D. student’s orchestral experience

In August, M.D./Ph.D. student Robin Su performed in Washington, D.C., with the World Doctors Orchestra USA.

Mr. Su was the only student among the 70 or so doctors and researchers volunteering their time for the charity concerts.

Women & Philanthropy Genetic Analysis Instrumentation Center

In May, we opened for The University of Toledo Women & Philanthropy Genetic Analysis Instrumentation Center. 

Inside the Women & Philanthropy Genetic Analysis Instrumentation CenterThe center, which increases the capability of UT researchers in the College of Medicine and Life Sciences to develop preventative, diagnostic and treatment strategies for diseases such as cancer and heart disease, was created with the help of nearly $60,000 from Women & Philanthropy, the largest grant ever awarded by the volunteer organization that supports UT initiatives.

“We are extremely grateful for the significant investment provided by Women & Philanthropy to establish the center, which will greatly enhance our capability to investigate numerous diseases and develop potential therapies,” said Dr. Steven Haller, assistant professor in the Department of Medicine and co-director of the new center with Dr. David Kennedy, assistant professor in the Department of Medicine.

The UT Women & Philanthropy Genetic Analysis Instrumentation Center also received more than $45,000 in support from Qiagen, a biomedical company headquartered in Germany, to help pay for instruments. 

This is an outstanding example of how philanthropy helps advance the research mission of UT and benefits all at this institution. Great work to Drs. Haller and Kennedy for their dedication on this, along with my appreciation to Women & Philanthropy for its generous gift!
