In 1996, Dr. Francis Pepper from Winston-Salem established the “Wood Fund for Advancement of Neuroradiology at UNC,” which supported an endowed chairmanship. The fund and Chair were established to honor Dr. Ernest H. Wood, first Chair of Radiology at UNC and a pioneer neuroradiologist. Income from the fund is used to support pilot research projects, an Annual Memorial Lecture and Spring Visiting Professorships.
