A local cardiologist has given UC Merced a $150,000 gift with the idea of helping graduates stay in the area after completing their degrees, and help improve and expand the community.

Dr. Vikram Lakireddy wants to continue his family’s long tradition of giving back and donating to the community. The money will be used to establish The Dr. and Mrs. Lakireddy Innovation and Design Clinic Endowed Fund.
