The University of Michigan’s Comprehensive Cancer Center in Ann Arbor has been gifted $150 million to boost research.
University regents are expected Thursday to approve renaming the facility the Rogel Cancer Center after Richard and Susan Rogel.
The school says the gift is one of the largest to the university. It is expected to help attract and support researchers from around the world and provide grants to teams developing new approaches and technologies to advance early cancer detection, monitoring and treatment.
Endowed professorships and scholarships also will be created.
Richard Rogel is president of investment firm Tomay Inc. He graduated in 1970 from the university’s business school. His wife, Susan, is on the steering committee of the Victors for Michigan National Campaign Leadership Board.
