Marie Nixon

Londoner Marie Nixon considers herself lucky to live in a city with innovative health-care and research organizations such as Robarts. “We are fortunate to live in a city with such world-class medical expertise,” said Marie, who has been supporting research at Robarts for the past eleven years. Marie’s generous donations support student endowments at Robarts, ensuring that today’s students become researchers that will shape the future of medicine. Having lost a number of family and friends to a range of diseases, Marie strongly believes that philanthropy is an important part of everyone’s lives and that, contrary to popular belief, “you don’t have to be rich to make an impact.” Marie has certainly made an impact at Robarts and with her support the next generation of Robarts Scientists will continue to lead the way in medical discovery.
