UNC has received a $10 million commitment to benefit both heart disease research at the School of Medicine and the Ackland Art Museum.

Dr. Hugh A. “Chip” McAllister Jr. of Houston is making the donation. The UNC McAllister Heart Institute is named after him for making the single largest donation in the School of Medicine’s history for cardiovascular research.

The commitment will be officially announced at a ceremony on Thursday at 4:30 p.m. in the N.C. Cancer Hospital Labyrinth and Serenity Garden. Both Chancellor Holden Thorp and Dr. Bill Roper, dean of the School of Medicine, will speak.
