$10 Million Gift to UC Irvine

It’s very unusual for a professor to donate large sums of money to their own institution. Dr. Ayala at the University of California at Irvine is doing the unusual: he’s donating $10 million to the School of Biological Sciences. Dr. Ayala is a renowned evolutionary geneticist who also apparently has an investor’s acumen; the money he is donating to the school comes from vineyards purchased years ago that have been rather successful. It’s a very nice story of someone investing in what he believes in: science education and research.
