Building on Success


Celebrating 50 Years of Medicine at Brown.

The celebration of 50 Years of Medicine at Brown kicked off last spring to recognize the many milestones and achievements since the establishment of the medical program. Through June of next year, we will reflect on the program’s beginnings, recognize how far we’ve come, and set a course for the future.

This was also a momentous year for the BrownTogether campaign, which hit its $3 billion fundraising goal ahead of schedule. This success has inspired an extension of the campaign that includes $150 million to further support the excellent teaching, research, and education happening at The Warren Alpert Medical School.

The intersection of 50 Years of Medicine and the extended campaign presents a special opportunity to engage the University community with initiatives that promote service through community partnerships, provide access to world-class health care, and foster research that improves the lives of all. The Division of Biology and Medicine’s impact can be felt both locally and worldwide, making this is an inspiring time to be a part of the Brown family.

Looking ahead, our focus areas include:

Positions for teaching and research faculty in priority areas as well as administrative roles like senior associate deans of medical education and diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI)

Capital and innovation funds to support research in areas like aging, alternatives to animal testing, brain health, cancer, international health/ infectious disease/immunology, and RNA/RNome

Medical and PhD student financial aid and research funds; programmatic support for student wellness, emergency funds, DEI, and advising; and faculty training/teaching support We are grateful to all the alumni, parents, and friends who have brought us this far.
