The Foundation is excited to announce today the creation of the Giovanis Institute for Translational Cell Biology, with a $35 million gift from researcher, philanthropist and race car driver Ted Giovanis.
The Institute will enable scientists at Johns Hopkins Medicine to study the biological roots of the most fatal aspect of cancer: how it metastasizes or spreads through the body.
The contribution is a 15-year commitment and the Institute’s researchers aim to make discoveries that reveal common features of metastasis across cancer types, with the potential to develop new therapies.
