HHMI awards renewal grant to Harvard professor
Maria Moors Cabot Professor of Biology Richard Losick recently joined seven other professors nationwide in receiving renewal grants from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI). The renewal grants will help to support the professors’ ongoing efforts to stimulate and sustain undergraduate interest in science.
“The scientists whom we have selected are true pioneers – not only in their research, but in their creative approaches and dedication to teaching,” said Thomas R. Cech, HHMI president. “We are hopeful that their educational experiments will energize undergraduate science education throughout the nation.”
