Ming Hsieh donates $50 million to establish a USC institute for research on engineering medicine for cancer

and other USC researchers in their quest to translate cancer discoveries into effective therapies for patients.

"The fight against cancer has gained a powerful ally in Ming Hsieh," said Puliafito. "This gift illustrates the critical synergy of healthcare and technology that has the potential to dramatically change the lives of cancer patients. We are grateful for his visionary gift."

The endowment will be used to support research and development, both at the bench and clinical scales, in the burgeoning field of nano-medicine for cancer. A fundamental component of research will be on nanoscale delivery platforms. Encapsulating nano-particles and other promising applications of nanotechnology will be pursued. New advances will also be sought in biomedical imaging that will help determine the delivery and targeting efficiencies of these treatments. In parallel, clinical research will be conducted to assess the efficacy of the resulting drug delivery with in vivo studies.

The Institute will bridge research from engineering and medicine. The recently launched program HTE@USC (Health, Technology and Engineering at USC) between the two schools has already laid a strong foundation for such collaborations and will be leveraged to augment educational and training opportunities for medical and doctoral students who participate in the Institute's research.

According to the American Cancer Society, approximately 1.5 million Americans will be diagnosed with cancer in 2010. About 570,000 people are expected to die-more than 1,500 people each day. Cancer will account for nearly one of every four deaths in the U.S. Yet statistics cannot truly grasp cancer's devastating human cost, as the disease puts a burden on families and loved ones and has an emotional impact that lasts for years.

"Ming Hsieh is an exemplary trustee and alumnus," said Edward P. Roski Jr., chairman of the USC Board of Trustees. "His generous gifts continue to adv
