Senior International Research Scholars
The Senior International Research Scholars (SIRS) awards support outstanding biomedical scientists working outside the U.S. who have made significant contributions to fundamental research in the biological sciences.
The SIRS awardees, selected from a group of previous HHMI international research scholars, are respected leaders in their fields. Their experience will make them valuable mentors to HHMI’s international early career scientists, and will strengthen the growing network of international biomedical researchers.
The SIRS awardees are based in Canada, Latin America, Europe, South Africa, and Australia. They are studying a variety of topics, including genetic interaction networks, the immune response, infectious and parasitic diseases, RNA splicing, stem cells, neurogenesis, and protein assembly.
