HONG KONG, Feb 23 (AP) -- The Australian National University is developing a science center named after Jackie Chan, the action film star's official Web site said.

The scientific display gallery was named after the Hong Kong actor because of his recent financial contribution to medical research conducted at the university in Canberra, a news statement posted Wednesday said.

Chan had earlier made a "significant contribution" to the university's medical school in honor of his mother, Lily Chan, who passed away in 2001, the statement said.
