$20 Million Gift to University of Miami for Autism Research

MIAMI -- An institute at the University of Miami will receive a $20 million gift to research some common but complex disorders including autism and Parkinson's, university officials announced Thursday.
The gift is being made by the John P. Hussman Foundation. Hussman, a Maryland-based investment fund manage, will spread the gift over a 10-year period.
As a result, the Miami Institute for Human Genomics will be renamed the John P. Hussman Institute for Human Genomics, UM officials said.
