Fayez S. Sarofim Research Building Ribbon Cutting

The Fayez S. Sarofim Research Building Ribbon Cutting

Lining up in front of the new $120 million Fayez S. Sarofim Research Building to snip the UT-orange ribbon on May 16 are (left to right): Dr. Irma Gigli, Dr. Peter Davies, UT-Houston President Dr. James T. Willerson, Development Board President Phil Conway, Dr. Tom Caskey, Mrs. Wilhelmina Smith (mother of “New Frontiers” Campaign co-chair Beth Robertson) and 1998 Nobel laureate Dr. Ferid Murad. “We could not have accomplished this without one of the best development boards in the city and the wonderful generosity of our supporters,” Willerson told faculty, staff and guests participating in the event.
