SOUTH BEND A foundation from Tulsa, Okla., has donated $3.5 million to the University of Notre Dame that will be combined with a previous gift valued at $6.5 million to endow a research center for drug discovery and development in the school's college of science.

The university says the gift Tuesday from the William K. Warren Foundation will support drug discovery by faculty with expertise in areas such as neurological and central nervous system disorders, infectious disease, cancer and rare diseases.

The university says the center will expand Notre Dame's entrepreneurial efforts by cultivating relationships with other participants in the field of drug development.
