Scottish philanthropist and popular writer JK Rowling has donated £15.3 million ($18.8 million) to the University of Edinburgh so they can build on the success of their Anne Rowling Regenerative Neurology Clinic.

The clinic, built-in 2010 thanks to another hefty donation from Rowling, was named after the author’s mother Anne Rowling who died from MS at the age of 45.

“When the Anne Rowling Clinic was first founded, none of us could have predicted the incredible progress that would be made in the field of Regenerative Neurology, with the Clinic leading the charge,” said Rowling.

“I am delighted to now support the Anne Rowling Regenerative Neurology Clinic into a new phase of discovery and achievement, as it realizes its ambition to create a legacy of better outcomes for generations of people with MS and non-MS neurodegenerative diseases.”

In addition to financing the construction of facilities pertaining to the clinic, the donation will also help fund research on neurodegenerative treatments and cures as well as how healthcare workers can improve the lives of patients suffering from similarly debilitating diseases.

Professor Peter Mathieson, Principal and Vice-Chancellor of The University of Edinburgh, said: “We are immensely honoured that J. K. Rowling has chosen to continue her support for the Anne Rowling Regenerative Neurology Clinic. This inspiring donation will fund a whole new generation of researchers who are focussed on discovering and delivering better treatments and therapies for patients.”
