Missouri’s veterinary college receives $11 million gift
COLUMBIA, MO. The University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine received a $ 11 million gift to help establish a new imaging center.
The gift from Glenn and Nancy Linnerson, who graduated from Missouri in 1954, was the largest in the college’s history, officials said Monday.
It is used to help Dr. Glenn R. and Nancy A. Linnerson to advance comparative and translational medical research at the university.
“The imaging equipment we can acquire with this foundation will not only improve diagnostic skills for treating animal patients, but also have the potential to leverage Mizzou’s existing strengths and resources, such as the MU Research Reactor, to conduct medical studies expand, “he said Kevin Lunceford, director of radiology services for the Veterinary Health Center. “Put simply, this gift will save lives.”
