KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- The University of Kansas Medical Center will use a $1 million gift to create a physiology professorship.

The university's endowment announced the gift Monday from Jim Osborn of Honolulu, Hawaii.

The gift honor's Osborn daughter, who worked in physiology at the medical center in 1968 and 1969 before dying in a car accident in 1970. At the time of her death, Kathleen Osborn was a junior at the University of Missouri.

Paul Cheney, chairman of the molecular and integrative physiology department, is the first recipient of the Kathleen M. Osborn Chair in Molecular and Integrative Physiology.

Osborn and his wife, Marion, already established the Kathleen Osborn Lectureship at the medical center. And Osborn established the Marion M. Osborn Professorship for Reproductive Science at the Kansas School of Medicine.
