Support for the Michael J. Anatomy Lab
The Michael J. Anatomy Lab was made possible by a gift from the Jaharis Family Foundation and is named for Jaharis family patriarch Michael Jaharis. Jaharis, who passed away in 2016, was the longstanding chairman of the School of Medicine’s Board of Advisors and a university trustee. The Jaharis family has been a deep-rooted supporter of education at Tufts, providing the foundational gift for the Jaharis Family Center for Biomedical and Nutrition Sciences and endowing the School of Medicine’s Jaharis Family Chair in Family Medicine.
