HHMI to Fund International Labs

Twenty-eight international scientists win HHMI funding to set up own research labs overseas.

By | January 25, 2012


The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) announced yesterday (January 24) that it will fund 28 young scientists in international labs to the tune of $20 million, reported ScienceInsider. Created to help US-trained scientists establish laboratories abroad, the first International Early Career Scientist grants were awarded to 28 researchers in countries that lack robust research funding despite adequate infrastructure to support science. The recipients, who will receive $100,000 per year for 5 years plus $150,000 to purchase lab equipment, can apply for renewed funding after 5 years.

Biographies of winners can be viewed at HHMI’s website. More information on winners will be posted at Science Careers on Thursday after 2 p.m.
