Johanna and Jeffrey Gunter have pledged $100,000 in support of the Eli and Edythe Broad Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at USC. Jeffrey Gunter graduated from the Keck School of Medicine in 1987 and completed his dermatology residency at the LAC+USC Medical Center in 1991.
“It’s our honor to help,” said Jeffrey Gunter. “The Eli and Edythe Broad Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at USC is poised to be one of the leading centers in the world, truly on the cutting edge of regenerative medicine. As a family, we’ve benefitted from the early advances of cell culture and research, so it was just logical to join the Center at the Keck School in pursuing their USC vision for medical research to benefit current and future generations.”
In recognition of their support, the Keck School will name a conference room in the Gunter family’s honor. Jeffrey Gunter also has recently joined the Keck School’s Broad Task Force, which plays a leadership role in promoting awareness and raising funds in support of the Broad Center’s research and educational programs.
The gift was coordinated by the Keck School of Medicine development office in conjunction with the USC Associates Program, the University of Southern California’s premier academic support group.
