$24M for heart center – Research network in works

The Donald W. Reynolds Foundation is giving Stanford University Medical Center $24 million to create a cardiovascular clinical research center that will focus on developing genetics-based approaches to the prevention and treatment of heart disease, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Aug. 23.

The funds will be distribution over four years by the foundation, which last year gave $24 million to create a similar research center at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.

The two centers are expected to become the core of a network of four to six such centers, the Chronicle reported.

Reynolds, who died in 1993, was the founder of Donrey Media Group, which includes the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Nevada’s largest newspaper.
