INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Indiana University School of Medicine is getting a $30 million gift to boost research into treatments that enlist a patient’s immune system in the quest for a cure for cancers and other diseases.

Dr. Donald Brown, a 1985 IU medical school graduate and founder of Interactive Intelligence, tells The Indianapolis Star (https://indy.st/2hod56R ) he’s making the gift to bolster the institution’s already strong research program in immunotherapy, an area that has long interested him.

Brown says he’s “hoping that Indiana can become one of the focal points for breakthroughs in immunology and immunotherapy.”

Brown is a founder of communications software business Interactive Intelligence. The newspaper says the gift being announced Tuesday will create the Donald Brown Center for Immunotherapy. About $13 million of the grant will establish endowed faculty chairs.
