Celebrating T. Boone Pickens’ legacy
Texas oil magnate and philanthropist T. Boone Pickens shared a long friendship with Harley Hotchkiss, founding donor and namesake of the Cumming School of Medicine’s Hotchkiss Brain Institute (HBI). UCalgary is tremendously grateful for Mr. Pickens’ visionary philanthropic leadership. The US $12.5M gift will build on the success of The Boone Pickens Centre for Neurological Science and Advanced Technologies, which delivered critical new spaces for research, training, and treatment at the Cumming School of Medicine’s Hotchkiss Brain Institute (HBI). The new program will power bright ideas and strong new HBI leaders, through two new transformative and sustainable funding streams.
