PPD founder Fred Eshelman has announced a $100-million donation to UNC-Chapel Hill, the largest single gift ever received by the university. He had already donated $38 million to the school, which in 2008 renamed its School of Pharmacy for him. The commitment will be used to create a center within the school named the Eshelman Institute for Innovation. The institute's goals are to fuel innovation, create jobs and spur economic development in the state and provide faculty with new resources to engage in timely, opportunistic research, education and practice.

Fred Eshelman, a 1972 graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill, is founder and former CEO of Pharmaceutical Product Development (PPD) and founding chairman of Furiex Pharmaceuticals.

Fred Eshelman, who graduated from UNC in 1972 and previously had given $38 million to the pharmacy school, donated the money to start the Eshelman Institute for innovation, where students and faculty will tackle issues such as researching new drugs, investigating new strategies for patient treatment. The pharmacy school, already named after Eshelman, will house the institute, said Dean Robert Blouin.
...
The gift had been in the works for 11 years, since Eshelman made his first donation of $20 million in 2003, Blouin said.
...
Eshelman pointed to the school's creation of more than 15 spin-off companies and its generation of more than 130 patents as evidence of its success. "Their success demonstrates the power and the future of drug discovery in academia, and it's a future that I am eager and proud to support," he said in a news release.
Eshelman is the founder and former chief executive officer of Pharmaceutical Product Development, which was sold in 2011 for $3.9 billion, and founding chairman of Furiex Pharmaceuticals, which was acquired in July 2014 in an all-cash transaction valued about $1.1 billion. He's a former member of the UNC Board of Trustees, having resigned that position earlier this year, one year before his term expired.
