  • Christin Carter-Su Fund
    As many of our faculty and alumni know, Christin Carter-Su has been an extraordinary colleague and mentor for decades, and the quality of her research is well-known and highly respected worldwide.  We hope to raise $250,000 to meet an equal match from the Carter and Carter-Su families and the Medical School – once this goal is achieved, Dr. Carter-Su will be the first of our female faculty to have a named Collegiate Professorship in her honor.  If you’re a colleague, friend or former trainee of Dr. Carter-Su, we hope that you’ll join us in supporting this important effort.
