PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Hillman Foundation is donating $30 million to the University of Pittsburgh over the next decade for cancer research.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/2xGR0bf ) the university and its affiliated hospital announced the gift Wednesday.

The Hillman Foundation had previously awarded the university $20 million in seed funding for cancer research.

Pitt Chancellor Patrick Gallagher is hopeful the gift will lead to new discoveries.

University officials didn’t discuss the future of the school’s Titusville campus at the meeting. Enrollment at the campus has declined under a budget shortfall.



Gallagher says the university will determine an action plan for the campus by the time the board meets in February.
