Description

Mary and Tim Boyle, ’71, have made a $10 million gift to endow funding for the UO’s aquatic animal care facility, fund the acquisition of state-of-the art instruments, and expand facilities dedicated to genomics research. It's the largest donation the UO has ever received to enhance the UO's aquatic animal care facility—the bedrock of life sciences research at the university. The path-breaking work of UO professor George Streisinger and his colleagues in the 1970s established the zebrafish as a powerful model organism for vertebrate research in understanding human development.
