    Congratulations to Rady Children's Hospital on the recent $120 million gift. Eight years after donating $60 million to the hospital that now bears their name, Ernest and Evelyn Rady announced a $120 million gift to help it establish the Rady Pediatric Genomics and Systems Medicine Institute. The donation, combined with $40 million pledged by the hospital itself, will be used to recruit a team to bring new therapies to children.
