$10 million gift to benefit Center for Genome Sciences

Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis has received a $10 million gift from the Harry Edison Foundation to support the Center for Genome Sciences and Systems Biology. The gift is from the Edison family, St. Louisans who have been major supporters of the university for five decades. The gift will help to advance the center’s innovative research programs, including its substantial work in understanding the gut microbiome — the tens of trillions of microbes that colonize the human gut and impact numerous aspects of human health.

“We are deeply grateful for the Edison family’s extraordinary generosity,” said Chancellor Mark S. Wrighton. “This gift will serve as an important catalyst for the School of Medicine’s personalized medicine initiative. It will enhance our efforts to understand how our genetic differences affect our well-being and disease risk and empower a new generation of scientists to combat illnesses that affect millions.”

The university will rename the center the Edison Family Center for Genome Sciences and Systems Biology.
