Jessie H. Bridges Endowed Professorship in Prostate Cancer Research
The Jessie H. Bridges Endowed Professorship in Prostate Cancer Research was established in 2009.
The Bridges Prostate Cancer Research Fund was established in 2000 by a gift from the estate of Jessie H. Bridges. Originally created to support prostate cancer research in UW Medicine’s Department of Urology, the endowment received additional funds in 2008, including a donation from UW Medicine Laureates Herman and Faye V. Sarkowsky. These funds allowed the Bridges Research Fund to be upgraded to a professorship, a position that will prove very useful in recruiting and retaining distinguished faculty in prostate cancer research.
