Circle of Willis



Members of the Circle of Willis are the philanthropic leaders of the McGovern Institute, advancing the work of McGovern researchers with gifts of $1,500 or more each year. Named for the arterial circle that nourishes the brain, the Circle of Willis enables the McGovern Institute to carry out its essential mission: understanding the brain in health and disease. In appreciation, Circle of Willis members are invited to private dinners, events and lab tours at the McGovern Institute.
