05/11/2005 - Launched in 1985, the Pew Scholars Program in the Biomedical Sciences provides four years of crucial support to fifteen investigators in the early to mid stages of their careers who show outstanding promise in the basic and clinical sciences. This year seven Pew Scholars, along with 36 other promising biomedical scientists, were named Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) Investigators. Like Pew Scholars, HHMI Investigators are chosen based on a rigorously competitive, nationwide review process. Both programs encourage their researchers to take innovative risks needed to push the limits of scientific knowledge. In previous years, other Pew Scholars have also been named HHMI Investigators.
