Two gifts totaling $6 million will establish endowed chairs at two internationally recognized centers of medical research at Colorado State University.


A private gift of $3 million from Mrs. Barbara Cox Anthony will endow a chair within the Orthopaedic Research Center, and another $3 million from The James M. Cox, Jr. Foundation of Atlanta, Ga., will establish a chair within the Animal Cancer Center. The two chairs will provide a secure source of funding to attract and retain the best scientific minds and to increase applied research into the areas of veterinary and human health issues.


“This is an easy investment to make. The veterinary scientists who are engaged in the kind of research that will ultimately benefit both animal and human health are deserving of our support,” said Mrs. Barbara Cox Anthony, president of The James. M. Cox, Jr. Foundation. “These are marvelous facilities conducting important and extraordinary work. The Orthopaedic Research Center and the Animal Cancer Center are engaged in scientific pursuits that are making a significant impact on the world of medicine.”


The gift is part of Colorado State’s initiative aimed at adding new endowed chairs. With this donation, the university has added six new chairs and professorships totaling $12 million since the initiative began in April of last year
