Endowment Association Announces Creation of KU Physiology Professorship

The University of Kansas will use a $1 million gift to create an endowed chair of physiology at the KU Medical Center. Jim Osborn of Honolulu, Hawaii, donated the money to establish the Kathleen M. Osborn Chair in Molecular and Integrative Physiology. Kathleen Osborn died in 1970, but had worked in a physiology lab at the KU School of Medicine in the late 1960s. Dale Seuferling (SY-fer-ling) is the president of KU Endowment. He says endowed professorships are important tools for recruiting the very best teachers and students:  

The first person to hold the new professorship will be Paul Cheney, an award-winning KU educator with a 30-year track record of receiving research grants from the National Institutes of Health. He's internationally known for his work on the brain's control of movement, and the neurological diseases associated with HIV and AIDS.
