UCalgary receives $12.5M USD for neuroscience research, innovation


The University of Calgary has received a $12.5M USD legacy gift from the T Boone Pickens Foundation to foster research and innovation in neuroscience. This bequest will benefit the Hotchkiss Brain Institute (HBI), which is part of UCalgary’s Cumming School of Medicine. The bulk of the gift ($9.25M USD) will support a newly endowed fund in memory of American business magnate T Boone Pickens; this new fund will promote leading-edge research at HBI by focusing on recruitment and education efforts. Pickens’ bequest will also enhance Calgary-grown entrepreneurship at HBI and provide a boost to the Rebecca Hotchkiss International Scholar Exchange
