Perelman School Receives (Another) Hefty Donation

…and the Med School wins again! The Philadelphia Business Journal announced today that The Perelman School of Medicine will receive $2.5 million over the next five years to fund the study of lung repair and tissue regeneration.  Surprisingly, this gift is only 1.1% of the most recent large contribution to the school, but even the smallest of multi-million dollar gifts helps in the school’s focus on chromatin remodeling factors and microRNA pathways (what?). Keep up the good work, Perelman School!

As a Penn bio grad, I just wanted to clarify:
