UNMC trains more health professionals practicing in Nebraska than any other institution. These future physicians, nurses, dentists and pharmacists are learning from experts in medical research and patient care.
Private gifts have helped UNMC attract top scientists, faculty and students. Through the Campaign for Nebraska donors have given more than $420 million to support people, programs and facilities.
This video highlights how private support has transformed the UNMC campus.
Private gifts have helped fund new homes for the College of Medicine and the College of Public Health. The new Durham Research Centers house top researchers in neurosciences, cardiovascular diseases, transplantation medicine and cancer.
Other new facilities such as the Truhlsen Eye Institute and the Home Instead Center for Aging provide state-of-the-art environments for patient care.
Many funding priorities for UNMC remain.
Top projects include a comprehensive cancer center and a new College of Pharmacy building, which will feature a Center for Drug Discovery.
