Burgess and Elizabeth Jamieson Chair in Healthspan Research

December 31, 2008

In 2008 Burgess and Elizabeth Jamieson donated $2 million to endow a chair at the Linus Pauling Institute. A private investor and co-founder of the venture capital firms Institutional Venture Associates and Sigma Partners, Burgess Jamieson has followed the work of the institute for many years. The Jamiesons established the chair to help advance healthspan research, which focuses on helping people achieve long and healthy lives, maintaining vitality and health even as they age.

The Jamieson Chair provides a strong foundation for the entire healthy aging program at the Linus Pauling Institute. The chair is intended to support a leading faculty member in the field and provide additional funds for research.
