Kathy and David D. Halbert, founders of Caris Foundation, have made a generous donation through the Foundation, to fund the Halbert-Walling Research Center on the campus of Abilene Christian University. The Halberts represent a four-generation family with deep ties to ACU.

The 54,000-square-foot facility opened for classes in January 2017 and serves as the new home for the departments of biology, chemistry and biochemistry and the Body and Soul program for pre-health students. Its laboratories, classrooms and lecture hall boast state-of-the-art equipment and modern designs.
