HHMI selects new clinical investigators

sities and other academic research organizations, where its investigators hold faculty appointments. Under these agreements, HHMI investigators, all of whom are employees of the Institute, carry out their research with considerable freedom and flexibility in HHMI laboratories located on various campuses. This model emphasizes people, not projects and differs from the grant-based approach used elsewhere. The Institute expects to provide initial research budgets of up to $1 million annually for each of its new investigators, plus payments to the host institutions for laboratory space.

The Institutes biomedical research expenditures this fiscal year will total about $450 million. In addition to conducting medical research, the Institute has a large grants program that supports science education in the United States and the research of a select group of biomedical scientists in other countries. HHMI grants will total more than $100 million during the current fiscal year.

Established in 1953 by the aviator-industrialist for whom it is named, the Institute maintains its headquarters and conference center in Chevy Chase, Maryland, just outside Washington, D.C.
