GIF News Updates:

The Global Ischemia Foundation has donated 70,000 to the University of Michigan to create an endowed fund and have distributions to be used for an annual award to support research or lectures on neuronal repair and/or regeneration after severe brain insult. The research chosen may be by graduate students or faculty, as determined by an internal peer review process. The award would be known as the 'Kathleen Davey Award'. We understand that distributions from the Fund shall be made in accordance with the University's existing endowment distribution policy. Any surplus distributions during any period may be accumulated for later use for the above purposes or may be added to the principal of the Fund, at the University's discretion.

Michigan's Response
Michigan partially matched the GIF donation by adding an additional 30,000 to the new fund and sent this thank you letter.
