Monday, April 17, 2017

A generous gift from Duke Engineering alumnus Alan L. Kaganov, E’60, MBA, MS, ScD and his wife, Carol, aims to advance the diagnosis, treatment and outcomes of pulmonary diseases by fostering new collaborations across engineering and medicine at Duke University.

“Because advances in engineering are also rapidly advancing medicine, we at Duke are keen to foster more partnerships between our medical and engineering schools,” says Mary Klotman, MD, chair of the Department of Medicine. “This generous gift will help to unite two areas of great strength: our Division of Pulmonary, Allergy, and Critical Care Medicine and the Department of Biomedical Engineering.”
