UC San Diego announced that PDRC Leadership Council members Steve and Lisa Altman donated $10 million toward construction of the new Altman Clinical and Translational Research building, to be completed in 2016.
The building will include laboratory space and clinical research beds for many UC San Diego programs, including the PDRC. Combining our clinical, clinical research and basic science programs constitutes one of our most significant milestones. We are profoundly grateful to the Altmans for enabling us to take this next step.
The Altmans have contributed to type 1 diabetes research in a multitude of ways, through their philanthropy as well as their enduring advocacy.
