HHMI selects new clinical investigators

CHEVY CHASE, MD, May 28, 2002--The Howard Hughes Medical Institute has selected 12 of the nations top physician-scientists to be appointed as HHMI investigators in an innovative program to improve the translation of basic science discoveries into enhanced treatments for patients.

They will join 324 HHMI investigators across the United States, a group whose recent honors include the National Medal of Science and the Lasker Award. Earlier this month, nine HHMI investigators were elected to membership in the National Academy of Sciences.

Those selected are Robert B. Darnell, The Rockefeller University; Brian J. Druker, Oregon Health & Science University; Todd R. Golub, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute; Katherine A. High, The Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia; Helen H. Hobbs, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center; Brendan H.L. Lee, Baylor College of Medicine; Emmanuel J. Mignot, Stanford University School of Medicine; Charles L. Sawyers, Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center and David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA; Robert F. Siliciano, The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine; Edwin M. Stone, University of Iowa Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine; Bruce D. Walker, Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital; Christopher A. Walsh, Harvard Medical School and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

This group of physician-scientists has already made impressive contributions to understanding some of societys most vexing health problems, including AIDS, cardiovascular disease and cancer, said HHMI President Thomas R. Cech. We believe that they have the potential to continue to improve healthcare by finding new ways to translate basic science discoveries into useful therapy for patients.

"Medical research is thriving today, primarily as a result of the powerful new tools of molecular biology that have revealed new concepts about the inner workings of the human cell, said Joseph L. Goldstein of the Univ
