Two SoM faculty members set up educational endowment

Franklin Adkinson Jr., professor of medicine and director of the School of Medicine’s postdoctoral training in allergy and immunology, as well as of the Bloomberg School’s graduate training program in clinical investigation, and Robert Hamilton, professor of medicine and pathology, have established a $600,000 Adkinson-Hamilton Education Endowment in the Division of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.

The funds for the endowment, which will support postdoctoral training programs, came from surpluses in the physicians’ Dermatology, Allergy and Clinical Immunology Reference Laboratory.

It is believed this is the first time in Johns Hopkins history that two faculty members have established an endowment with surpluses from their own laboratories.
