"With this gift, ThyssenKrupp continues our support of Dr. Hendrix and her team at the Stanley Manne Children's Research Institute. Supporting research which advances knowledge and furthers medical innovation and discovery is an investment in the future -- one we believe will benefit Chicago and beyond," said Torsten Gessner.
