Four ADIs named HHMI Faculty Scholars

September 22, 2016

Four Allen Distinguished Investigators have been named to the inaugural class of Faculty Scholars by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the Simons Foundation, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Ed Boyden, Jennifer Nemhauser, Feng Zhang and Kathrin Plath were nominated as early-career scientists who have great potential to make unique contributions to their field. The first group of 84 scholars represent 43 institutions across the United States. 


Through the new Faculty Scholars Program, the philanthropies will spend about $83 million over five years to support the first cohort of scientists selected to receive grants.
