Stanford, Coulter Foundation fund $20M translational research endowment

Stanford University will match a $10 million gift from the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation to establish an endowment aimed at moving medical treatments and devices toward patients.
The cash will continue a program that has produced 25 projects over the past five years at Stanford, including a blood test that could be an alternative to prenatal amniocentesis and a surgical dressing that could prevent scarring. In fact, according to Stanford, the endowment will allow the Wallace H. Coulter Translational Research Grant Program continue in perpetuity.
