Thomas C. Jenkins Professorship in Biophysics

The Thomas C. Jenkins Endowment was established by Mrs. MAY McSHANE JENKINS in honor of her husband, the late THOMAS COURTNAY JENKINS, who was a famed Baltimore financier and art collector. Passionate about advancing knowledge in biophysics, Mrs. Jenkins designated the remainder of her estate to the Biophysics Department of The Johns Hopkins University in 1959.

In 2010, in an effort to support and recognize premier faculty in biophysics, and recognizing the extraordinary contributions of Dr. and Mrs. Jenkins, the school created two named chairs in the Department of Biophysics.
