Dartmouth Medical School Receives $20 Million

The largest ever donation to Dartmouth Medical School and the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center was recently announced. The donation of $20 million came from Peter Williamson ’58 and his wife Susan. Williamson, a professor of neurology, is the director of the hospital’s Epilepsy program.

Williamson wants the bulk of his donation to go to “translational research”, which focuses on getting discoveries in the laboratory to the patients most in need of them.
