FIGHTING DISEASE. A. Alfred Taubman, who made a fortune developing real estate, has given $22 million to the University of Michigan Health System to help found a new institute that will conduct basic research on human disease. A portion of the gift will go to five scholars at the university's medical school, each of whom will receive a research award of $200,000 per year for 3 years. Taubman's previous gifts to his alma mater add up to more than $38 million.
