The DNA Facility in the UI Carver College of Medicine received a $2 million operational endowment, officials announced Tuesday.

The endowment comes from the Carver Charitable Trust. The funds are a portion of the trust’s $63 million commitment to the medical school.

The proceeds will support research projects, recruitment and retention of faculty and staff, and the purchase of scientific tools.

Services and resources provided by the DNA facility support hundreds of investigators at the UI and other institutions across the state.

“We are deeply grateful to the leaders of the Carver Charitable Trust for their support of the DNA Facility,” Michael Apicella, the senior associate dean for scientific affairs at the medical school, said in a UI press release.
