Green Foundation, Trust gives $12.8 million for UT Southwestern comprehensive research center

DALLAS Feb. 20, 2004 A major grant from the Cecil and Ida Green Foundation, representing the final distribution of the foundation's assets by its trustees, has been combined with a specific bequest from the late Mr. Green through his Trust to provide $12.8 million to UT Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas.

The gift will be used to establish a comprehensive center that will utilize information technology to enable scientists to link basic research on molecules and cells with analysis of the function of entire biological systems.

The Cecil H. and Ida Green Comprehensive Center for Molecular, Computational and Systems Biology will be overseen by Dr. Alfred Gilman, chairman of pharmacology and one of UT Southwestern's four Nobel laureates.

To continue advances in biomedical research, Dr. Gilman said scientists must have the latest tools in computer science, engineering and imaging technology, and the Green Comprehensive Center will greatly enhance UT Southwestern's capacities in this respect.

Dr. Kern Wildenthal, president of UT Southwestern, said the gift will provide new avenues for research and collaboration among scientists, enabling researchers to build on the remarkable scientific developments made during the 20th century.

"The generosity of Cecil and Ida Green over many decades has made extraordinary progress possible at UT Southwestern and many other institutions," he said. "This final distribution from the Green Foundation trustees will have a profound impact on UT Southwestern's programs in basic research and systems biology, and on biomedical science worldwide.

"Integrating the power of computational science and modern imaging technologies with basic molecular and cellular research will allow remarkable insights to be gained about how biological systems function in health and diseases. This new area of science will be at the forefront of medical progress in the 21st century, and thanks to Mr. Green and th
