The Howard Hughes Medical Institute has named 50 researchers, 41 men and nine women, to receive the Early Career Scientist award. Each recipient will receive from HHMI his or her full salary, benefits, and a research budget of $1.5 million. HHMI will also cover other costs, such as research space and equipment. These lucky 50 include these systems biology stars: Mass Gen's Bradley Bernstein and Konrad Hochedlinger, Stanford's Howard Chang and Karl Deisseroth, Joshua Mendell from Johns Hopkins, the University of Chicago's Molly Przeworski, and Aviv Regev from MIT, among others. Congratulations, one and all.
