The new gift follows a major donation Rowling made in 2010 that started the Anne Rowling clinic at the university.

此次捐贈之前,羅琳曾在2010年豪捐過一次,用于在愛丁堡大學開設安妮羅琳診所。

Rowling said she is encouraged by advances being made and proud that the clinic is not only doing important research but has also provided "practical, on the ground support and care for people with MS."

羅琳說正在取得的進步給了她鼓舞,而且她很驕傲該診所不僅進行重要研究,而且也“為多發性硬化癥患者提供切實有效的幫助和照顧”。
