In late 2007, A. Alfred Taubman, one of America’s leading entrepreneurs and philanthropists, launched the medical research institute that bears his name at the University of Michigan Medical School. His vision was to create a research community at the university where fundamental scientific discovery can begin to unlock the core processes of disease, to aid in their diagnosis, treatment and cure, thereby alleviating the suffering of millions of people throughout the world. His commitment to the A. Alfred Taubman Medical Research Institute now stands at $100 million, the largest donation in the history of the University of Michigan Health System.

Alfred Taubman’s Vision
Over the past half century, Alfred Taubman has revolutionized the retail landscape in America, assembling one of the finest collections of shopping malls in the world. Beyond this, he has established a record of accomplishment in a number of other business endeavors, including land development, art appraisal and auction, and the restaurant industry. He chronicled his achievements and described his philosophy of business leadership in the book "Threshold Resistance."

Creation of the A. Alfred Taubman Medical Research Institute, by providing resources for the pursuit of research discoveries unfettered by conventional granting mechanisms, reduces a barrier to blue-sky, creative research. It, in fact, lowers the threshold resistance for stepping into new fields, permitting creative scientists to follow early hunches that lead to great cures.
