About the Gill Center

The Linda and Jack Gill Center for Biomolecular Science at Indiana University was established in 1999, through a generous gift from Jack and Linda Gill, to advance the understanding of complex biological processes and to train next-generation scientists in state-of-the-art biomolecular measurements, especially in the field of neuroscience. Collaborations include IU Bloomington’s world-class Departments of Biology, Chemistry, Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry, Physics, Psychological and Brain Sciences, and Neuroscience, and the School of Medicine.

Traditionally trained scientists in various fields have already made major contributions to modern neuroscience. Training the future generation of researchers requires an even greater emphasis on utilizing a collaborative approach. The Gill Center was founded with this emphasis in mind.

Mission and Vision

Founded through a substantial gift from the Linda & Jack Gill Foundation of Texas and supported by IU’s College of Arts + Sciences, the Gill Center aims to:

  • Conduct innovative molecular/cellular neuroscience research;
  • Foster and participate in the broad neuroscience community at Indiana University, building relationships that enable new solutions for major research questions;
  • Recruit, educate, and train outstanding students and postdoctoral fellows in neuroscience, and provide them with the community in which to pursue translational and other forms of collaborative and multilevel research; and
  • Encourage collaboration between IU Bloomington and other research universities, as well as bioscience companies, as a means of increasing the national reputation of IU Bloomington as an outstanding center for neuroscience research.

With leveraged philanthropy, the donor provides the seed, but the program goes on to become continuous and self-sustaining. Through this center, IU has truly become a pioneer, both in addressing the major national priority of neurological health and in implementing a new model of philanthropic engagement.
