This fund provides critical financial support for new and emerging initiatives throughout the school.
The Dean’s Innovation Fund provides the Dean of the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences unrestricted funds to respond rapidly and flexibly to ideas as they arise.
From our founding as a medical school in 1846, to paving the way for future physicians, the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences builds upon its proud legacy of teaching, patient care and scientific discovery.
The fund was established in 2000 by Ronald Garvey, M.D. '53, in support of the school—one of the oldest medical schools in the United States.
