Andy Berg Headshot

Members of the University of Pittsburgh athletics department, as well as local professional teams, are hoping to give Pitt's Center for Vaccine Research a leg up in finding a COVID-19 vaccine.

The families of head football coach Pat Narduzzi, head men's basketball coach Jeff Capel, head women's basketball coach Lance White and director of athletics Heather Lyke made a combined $500,000 lead donation to the CVR.

They were then joined by the city's three major professional sports franchises — the Penguins of the National Hockey League, the Pirates of Major League Baseball and the Steelers of the National Football League — which each donated $100,000.
