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

此次捐赠之前,罗琳曾在2010年豪捐过一次,用于在爱丁堡大学开设安妮罗琳诊所。

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."

罗琳说正在取得的进步给了她鼓舞,而且她很骄傲该诊所不仅进行重要研究,而且也“为多发性硬化症患者提供切实有效的帮助和照顾”。
