In Memoriam

Dan C. Searle, former chair of G.D. Searle and Company and a philanthropic and civic leader in Chicago and the nation, died on October 30, 2007 at the age of 81. It was Dan’s visionary leadership that prompted the establishment of the Chicago Biomedical Consortium in 2006. His belief in the importance of scientific discovery for the improvement of mankind and his recognition that collaboration among Chicago’s leading research universities was essential for both scientific and civic advancement provided the framework for the CBC. In its mission and programs the CBC honors his memory and continues his legacy.
