The Mcknight Legacy

McKnight Brain Research Foundation Logo

Evelyn F. McKnight Brain Research Foundation

In 1999, a generous gift from the McKnight Brain Research Foundation led to a new name for the University of Florida’s Brain Institute — the Evelyn F. & William L. McKnight Brain Institute of the University of Florida. Evelyn F. McKnight and her husband William M. McKnight were interested in the effects of aging on memory, inspiring the establishment of the foundation as a legacy of support for brain research to alleviate the specific influence of age-related memory loss.
