Pfizer donates $5 million to La Jolla Institute
San Diego Union-Tribune

Pharmaceutical giant Pfizer has donated $5 million to the La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology, much of which will be used to create an endowed chair in cancer immunology. The gift is the largest private donation ever received by LJI, which has struggled to supplement federal and industry funding with philanthropy. That struggle contributed to LJI’s decision last year to become an affiliate of UC San Diego. The university agreed to give the institute $36 million over a 12-year period.
