$100 million Gift to Brown's Brain Science Institute

A $100 million gift to Brown University’s brain science institute from alumnus Robert J. Carney and Nancy D. Carney will drive an ambitious agenda to quicken the pace of scientific discovery and help find cures to some of the world’s most devastating diseases, such as ALS and Alzheimer’s.

Brown University is an organization we frequently partner with as they are also in Rhode Island. We are excited to see what they do with this incredible gift.
