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

shed Chair in Cellular and Molecular Biology. Also incorporated within the comprehensive center will be a program previously established by the Greens, the Cecil H. and Ida Green Center for Reproductive Biology Sciences. An additional $1.5 million, including $1,335,000 specifically bequeathed by Mr. Green through his Trust to UT Southwestern and supplemented by a special $165,000 grant from the Green Foundation, will be used to create a Fund for Endowed Scholars in Biomedical Computational Science, providing resources to enable the regular recruitment of rising young research "stars" in biomedical computational science.

The new funds, combined with the earlier gifts, will yield a total endowment to support the comprehensive Green program of more than $25 million.

The names of Mr. Green, one of the founders of Texas Instruments, and Mrs. Green, who died in 1986, are found throughout the UT Southwestern campus, most notably on two buildings: the Cecil H. and Ida Green Science Building, and the Cecil H. and Ida Green Biomedical Research Building.

In addition, Mr. Green and two other TI founders, Erik Jonsson and Eugene McDermott, donated funds in the 1960s and 1970s to establish the Excellence in Education Foundation, which in 1992 provided a $30 million lead gift to endow molecular research at UT Southwestern. The gift was commemorated by the naming of the North Campus auditorium in honor of the foundation.
