From The Palm Beach Post: Jupiter Island entrepreneur David Auth has given $900,000 to the Max Planck Florida Institute, an example of a deep-pocketed donor opening his checkbook to one of the state’s taxpayer-funded research labs.

Auth, 74, holds 90 patents and brings biotech bona fides to South Florida.

A physicist by training, Auth developed a catheter for removing plaque from coronary arteries and in 1989 founded Heart Technology Inc. of Redmond, Wash.

Auth later took the company public, then sold it to Boston Scientific Corp. in 1995 for $500 million.

Auth lived in the Seattle area for years, but he and his wife, Nancy, settled full-time in Hobe Sound a few years ago.
