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

e Green Foundation trustees, UT Southwestern will be one of the leaders in the field."

The gift is part of the final disbursal from the Foundation, which is being liquidated following Mr. Green's death on April 12, 2003. Mr. Green and his wife, Ida, long ago announced their intention to ultimately distribute all of their wealth to philanthropic organizations.

Bryan Smith, president of the Green Foundation, said the board of trustees decided that the major part of the foundation's assets should go toward one program.

"Our plan is consistent with Mr. Green's desires, with the beneficiary being an institution with which he had a long relationship. This is a big expression of faith in these fields of interest and in the ability of UT Southwestern to carry out these plans in the Green tradition."

Dr. Gilman also directs the Dallas-based Alliance for Cellular Signaling, an international consortium of researchers who pool their efforts to study how cells interact with, or signal, each other. The new Green Center will become home to this initiative.

"This gift is a wonderful example of the generosity of Mr. and Mrs. Green," said Dr. Gilman. "It will give us flexibility, freedom and opportunity.

"Individual labs are doing a tremendous job of discovering how a cell receives specific signals and sends information from point A to point B to regulate function," said Dr. Gilman. "But the cell has to listen to perhaps 50 or 60 signals simultaneously to do its job, and we don't yet know the design principles for assembly of such a complex and dynamic network.

"There is an enormous increase in interest in quantitative analysis of complex systems, and much of this is a natural ext
