MWRI Receives $1 Million Gift for Prematurity Research
“Our family’s passion is to end prematurity. To accelerate this work, we are delighted to invest in a woman-focused organization, like MWRI, where over 50% of its researchers are women, over 50% of its lead researchers are women, and more than 50% of research funds are obtained by senior women researchers.”
Nearly 1 in 10 babies are born prematurely each year in the United States. Two of Terri and Tom Bone’s three children were born prematurely, inspiring the couple to give $1 million for ongoing prematurity research at Magee-Womens Research Institute. The research will take place at UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).
