Hughes announces investigator awards

The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) has named 26 biomedical researchers to its 2015 class of investigators. They will receive a total of $153 million over the next five years.

The institute pays the salary of each of its investigators, and provides funds for their research and some additional costs, for example to cover laboratory space and equipment. The arrangement can be renewed after five years.

“One of the most important things we can do at HHMI is to continue to support and encourage the best discovery research. We don’t know this for certain, but the ideas that emerge from these labs might one day change the world, and it’s our privilege to help make that happen,” said HHMI president Robert Tjian.
