"This gift, coupled with Sanford-Burnham's strategic focus to help pioneer the next wave of biomedical discoveries, underscores the importance of private and non-profit organizations coming together to advance innovation for our industry, especially as we see government funding and resources for fundamental and translational biomedical research shrinking," said Bruno Cohen, Chairman of the Galien Foundation. "We applaud the benefactor and Sanford-Burnham for their commitment to advancing biomedical science and innovation, and for their focus on improving patient lives and human health."
