Press Room

The HHMI Press Room provides members of the media and public information officers with access to embargoed press releases and information about the work of HHMI researchers and grantees. It also contains supplementary resources such as photos, videos, and backgrounders about HHMI’s research and scientists.

Embargoed News

To access the embargoed section of this site, you must be a member of the media, a freelance writer, or a public information officer at an HHMI host institution or HHMI grantee institution.

We have launched a new and improved website as of June, 2013.

For security reasons we did not bring old accounts and passwords into this new system, so you will need to register and request a new Press Room login if you would like to view embargoed news stories. Register for the Press Room…
