New grants enable biomedical research centers to share science with their communities

te encouraged applicants to involve graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in the outreach programs, in an effort to foster a commitment to public science education among the next generation of research scientists.

"These grants enable HHMI to encourage our colleagues at biomedical research centers to share the content and excitement of their research in novel ways with a broad array of the public," said Peter Bruns, HHMI vice president for grants and special programs. "The funded projects include formal and informal education as well as research experiences for students at many levels, from a variety of social and educational backgrounds."

The new grants range from $337,768 to $539,970. An additional $422,930 has been set aside for an HHMI-led evaluation to assess the effectiveness of the programs.

Two previous rounds of grants to biomedical research institutions in 1994 and 1999 totaled $23 million. The programs supported have reached more than 350,000 school children and nearly 16,000 teachers.
