2016 Difficult Diseases Taken On in Texas
Retired oil executive James Mulva and his wife Miriam took aim in 2016 at “widespread and difficult diseases that impact so many people and families.” They donated $50 million to create a neurology clinic at the University of Texas medical school in Austin, and $25 million for prostate and melanoma treatment at another UT facility, the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. The Mulvas had previously donated $75 million to engineering and business programs and ROTC training at UT-Austin.
