Warman named to Hughes Institute

CLEVELAND -- The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) has selected a faculty member at Case Western Reserve University's School of Medicine as a Hughes assistant investigator. Matthew Warman is one of 48 scientists chosen in a national competition by HHMI and is the only Ohio researcher among the group. HHMI is one of the nation's largest medical research and philanthropic organizations.

Warman is the second CWRU researcher to hold this distinction. Three years ago, Sanford Markowitz, the Ingalls Professor of Cancer Genetics at CWRU, was named a Hughes investigator.

"I feel privileged to have received excellent mentoring throughout my career, to enjoy wonderful collaborations, to be able to learn from my patients and their families, to have the love and support of my own family, and to be surrounded by outstanding colleagues and students," said Warman. "I am honored to have been selected by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. I hope that our work here at CWRU and University Hospitals of Cleveland will improve human health through our studies of rare and common human genetic diseases."

Warman, who is an assistant professor of genetics and pediatrics, has been with CWRU since 1995. He also is a clinical geneticist in the Center for Human Genetics at University Hospitals of Cleveland.

He holds research grants from the National Institutes of Health, the Arthritis Foundation, and the March of Dimes Birth Defects Foundation. His research concerns genetics and skeletal and joint disorders.

HHMI will fund Warman's research and laboratory. HHMI enters into long-term research collaboration agreements with universities and other academic research organizations where its investigators hold faculty appointments.

HHMI expects to spend between $500,000 and $1 million annually for each of its new investigators, including support to the host institutions for graduate training, library resources, and other needs. HHMI's endowment is about $13 bil
