Louis Simpson and Kimberly Querrey set new campaign record of $117.8 million in total giving from a single benefactor. In recognition of their generosity, the new biomedical research center on Northwestern’s Chicago campus will be named the Louis A. Simpson and Kimberly K. Querrey Biomedical Research Center. The new state-of-the-art research center, comprising approximately 600,000 square feet, will have nine laboratory floors. It has been designed to accommodate an additional 15 laboratory floors of vertical expansion in the future.
