Theodore and Vada Stanley Distinguished Professorship in Neurovirology in Pediatrics

StanleyTheodoreVadaThe late THEODORE and VADA STANLEY were major supporters to Johns Hopkins, both Medicine and University, for more than twenty-five years. There are countless signs all across Johns Hopkins reminding us of the power of the Stanley’s philanthropy. From the crepe myrtle bush planted in memory of Ted and Vada in our hospital courtyard, to the named “Stanley Division of Pediatric Neurovirology”, and to the number of Stanley Scholars for whom every summer have the opportunity to conduct research side by side with faculty in The Stanley Lab. With a combined giving history exceeding $62M, the Stanley’s were committed to supporting mental health related research in more than twelve departments across Johns Hopkins, from molecular psychiatry to epidemiology, pediatrics to mental health, and neurobiology to neuroimaging.
