Kathryne and Gene Bishop give $6 million to Children's Medical Center Research Institute
April 30, 2018 - Dallas Morning News
Longtime Children's Health supporters Kathryne and Gene Bishop have pledged about $6 million to the Children's Medical Center Research Institute at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.
The institute studies the intersection of cancer, stem cell applications and metabolism, said Children's Medical Center Foundation president Brent Christopher.
"This is where they think the biggest breakthroughs, the most scalable and widely applicable treatments are going to happen," he said. "These are world-class doctors doing extraordinary work."
The Bishops have supported Children's Health for more than 40 years, including endowing the director's chair at the research institute, held by Dr. Sean Morrison.
The foundation wants to raise $200 million for long-term funding of the institute, Christopher said.
