Britz Family Boosts Lung Research at UCSF Fresno with $250,000 Gift


David and Marilyn Britz of Fresno provided a $250,000 gift to UCSF Fresno to be used for research into the causes, prevention and treatment of lung diseases.
Asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cystic fibrosis, lung cancer, lung nodules, pneumonia and pulmonary hypertension are some of the diseases and conditions related to the lungs.
“We hope that by making this gift, others will be inspired to support the outstanding patient care and clinical research that UCSF Fresno provides right here in the Valley,” said David Britz.
Faculty at UC San Francisco’s Fresno campus are engaged in life-improving and life-saving patient care and research involving complex lung diseases through programs such as The UCSF Fresno Cystic Fibrosis Program, the Lung Nodule Program and the UCSF Fresno-affiliated Pulmonary Hypertension Program.
“This contribution will allow us to provide important seed funding to encourage novel research efforts aimed at addressing lung diseases,” said Michael W. Peterson, associate dean at UCSF Fresno.
