HHMI Opens New Program for Medically Trained Scientists
A new $120 million research program aims to tap scientists’ knowledge of the human body.
March 30, 2020
Today, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) is unveiling the Medically Trained Scientists Program (MTS), an initiative to support scientists who have a background in medicine. The 2021 program will offer as many as eight years of support for up to ten early-career scientists who are committed to conducting basic research. This long-term investment will begin with mentored postdoctoral training and transition through MTS fellows’ early years as independent faculty.
