Brody Endowment


We are pleased to announce the Jerome S. Brody, M.D., Endowed Fund, to honor our friend and colleague Jerry Brody. Dr. Brody was the longest serving director of the Pulmonary Center.  For over 30 years, his vision of multidisciplinary biological research in pulmonary medicine drove tremendous growth and achievement here, while he also served as a renowned and valued advisor to fellows and students.  Jerry’s scientific passion focused on lung development.  He established foundations for our current knowledge about lung cell and molecular biology, and he made seminal contributions relating to cigarette smoke-induced lung diseases including lung cancer and COPD.  Jerry substantially improved the Pulmonary Center and the BU School of Medicine, and he had a huge impact on pulmonary medicine worldwide.  This endowment will specifically support pulmonary research at BU, and will convert to the Jerome S. Brody Professorship if and when the professorship target is reached.  We hope you will be as excited as we are about this opportunity to honor Dr. Brody!
