"USC has established itself as one of the world's leading private research universities, a major intellectual contributor to Los Angeles and Southern California, a pioneer in the neurosciences, and an invaluable member of our community," said Robert A.

"In particular, USC has proven itself a leader in the area of neurogenetic disorders. With its tremendous faculty, a focused, multidisciplinary approach and sufficient financial support, we believe USC and indeed the entire medical research community have an extraordinary opportunity to achieve major breakthroughs In the understanding and treatment of these painful, debilitating and economically crippling diseases through a new Neurogenetic Initiative."

Already, scores of USC scientists, clinicians, nurses, technicians and others are at work on the care, treatment and prevention of neurological diseases - at the Keck School of Medicine on USC's Health Sciences Campus, at the Andrus Gerontology Center and the Alzheimer's Disease Research Center on USC's University Park Campus; in the Geriatric Neurobehavior and Alzheimer Center at USC-affiliated Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center; and at other sites and clinics throughout Los Angeles County.

The gift and renaming of the School will be formally announced at a September 17 event on the Health Sciences Campus.
