The College of Health Sciences announced it has received a $5 million gift from Dr. Michael and Mrs. Billie Kubly. The gift will be used to establish the Charles E. Kubly Mental Health Research Center in the college.
The Kublys are the founders of the Charles E. Kubly Foundation, “a public charity devoted to improving the lives of those affected by depression.” The charitable foundation is named in honor of their son, Charles, who took his own life after a long battle against the disease of depression. Rather than a foundation donation, however, the Kublys’ gift is a personal one.
"Murray's Problem" is a four-part special series in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The series focuses on Dr. Murray Blackmore, assistant professor of biomedical sciences, highlighting his research on spinal cord injury and exploring his personal story.
