Robert W. Woodruff

The Robert W. Woodruff Foundation has pledged $400 million—the largest gift ever received by Emory—to find cures, develop patient care models, and improve lives while enhancing the health of people in need.

The gift will be used to fund a Winship Cancer Institute Tower in Midtown and a Health Sciences Research Building on the main Emory campus. “This will allow us to accelerate the scientific discoveries needed for breakthroughs in patient care and to extend our reach in reducing the burden of disease for patients and their families,” says Jonathan Lewin, executive director of the Woodruff Health Sciences Center and CEO of Emory Healthcare. The Winship Cancer Institute Tower in Midtown will provide urgently needed infusion facilities, operating rooms, clinical exam rooms, and spaces for rehabilitation, imaging technology, and research. The Health Sciences Research Building will house faculty and staff charged with developing a pipeline of cures, interventions, and methods of preventing disease.
