Roy and Maxine Johnson Endowed Professorship in Epilepsy
The Roy and Maxine Johnson Endowed Professorship in Epilepsy was established in 2009 — having originally been established as a general endowment for program support.
Millions of people in the United States alone suffer from epilepsy — chronic recurrent seizures. By making provisions in their estate plans for the creation of this endowment, the Johnsons hoped to provide a constant source of income to be used for innovative research, in-depth training and education, and new technology to meet future needs in epilepsy research and treatment at UW Medicine.
The Johnsons’ endowment became a professorship when the remaining assets of the Johnsons’ trust were distributed to the University of Washington.
