Northwestern Trustee and alumnus Louis A. Simpson '58, '96 P and his spouse, Kimberly K. Querrey '96 P, have made an additional $92 million gift to Northwestern in support of the University’s biomedical research programs at the Feinberg School of Medicine.

 

The latest gift comes just a year after the couple made a $25 million gift to Northwestern to endow the Louis A. Simpson and Kimberly K. Querrey Institute for BioNanotechnology in Medicine (SQI). SQI is conducting some of the world’s most innovative, interdisciplinary research in applying nanotechnology to regenerative medicine.


These gifts, along with the couple’s earlier gifts, bring their total contributions to We Will. The Campaign for Northwestern to $117.8 million. This represents the largest amount given by a single donor to the campaign.

 

In recognition of their generosity, the new biomedical research center on Northwestern’s Chicago campus will be named the Louis A. Simpson and Kimberly K. Querrey Biomedical Research Center.
