HHMI Awards Fellowships to Train Physician Scientists
HHMI Awards Fellowships to Train Physician Scientists

Summary

HHMI has awarded fellowships to 28 physicians to do postdoctoral training that combines clinical medicine with laboratory research.
The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) has awarded postdoctoral fellowships to 28 physicians who want to combine clinical medicine with laboratory research. The fellowships provide support for three years of postdoctoral study in basic science laboratories. HHMI physician postdoctoral fellows are preparing for careers as physician scientists. The goal of the program is to enable the fellows to cross traditional boundaries between clinical medicine and basic biomedical research and develop new approaches to the treatment and prevention of disease. This year's postdoctoral fellows include 24 physicians from the United States and four from other countries (Greece, Belgium, Germany and Iran). The postdoctoral fellowship program currently supports 69 physicians at an annual cost of approximately $6.5 million. There are three HHMI graduate fellowship programs. The others award fellowships for research training of medical students and for predoctoral study in the biological sciences. New fellowship recipients are:
