Brigham and Women’s Hospital Announces Visionary $25 Million Gift to Advance Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis Research

Brigham and Women’s Hospital has announced a gift of $25 million from Frank and Barbara Resnek to support our research into primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC). This visionary gift will advance and expand work underway within the Resnek Family Center for PSC Research at the Brigham. In total, the Resneks have given more than $45 million to PSC research at the Brigham, making them the largest donors to the disease in the world. This recent gift will allow Dr. Joshua Korzenik, who holds the Resnek Family Distinguished Chair in Gastroenterology and Hepatology at the Brigham, to expand his team, pursue multiple areas of research simultaneously, and apply findings to other liver diseases and to conditions closely linked to PSC, like ulcerative colitis. Korzenik also plans to use the funds to attract new collaborators and pursue additional funding to move the entire field forward. Read more about this generous gift here.
