Indiana U. Cancer Center receives $50 million

The Indiana University Cancer Center recently received a $50 million gift, from Melvin and Bren Simon of Indianapolis, to support both cancer research and patient-care initiatives. The cancer center research program and patient-care facilities, which are part of the IU Medical Center on the IUPUI campus, will be named The Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center. One half of the grant will be used to create the Joshua Max Simon Research Endowment to recruit and retain internationally accomplished researchers to the Indiana University School of Medicine and support the school’s laboratory research programs at the cancer center. The other half will fund the expansion of the cancer center’s patient-care facility, a collaboration between the Indiana University School of Medicine and Clarian Health.
