The William K. Warren Foundation of Tulsa, Okla., has made a $3.5 million gift to the University of Notre Dame that, combined with a previous gift valued at $6.5 million, will endow the creation of The Warren Family Research Center for Drug Discovery and Development in the College of Science.
The center will be a state-of-the-art resource for a highly productive and renowned group of drug discovery faculty with expertise and interest in areas such as neurological and central nervous system disorders, infectious disease, cancer and rare diseases.
“The work of the center will improve the lives of people worldwide, which is a central component of Notre Dame’s mission as a Catholic research university,” said Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., the University’s president. “The Warren family has been enormously generous to Notre Dame over the years, and we are sincerely grateful for this visionary gift.”
