JK Rowling has given her backing to a university project hoping to solve some of the mysteries of multiple sclerosis (MS). The MS Society Scotland (MSSS), of which Rowling is patron, has given a grant to the University of Aberdeen to create a special research group. The author of the Harry Potter novels, whose mother died 10 years after being diagnosed with MS, has donated an undisclosed amount to the project. (From the BBC)
