Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) is a science philanthropy whose mission is to conduct basic biomedical research. HHMI’s guiding principle is to support “people, not projects” because it is individual scientists with their creativity, curiosity, and persistence who break through barriers to advance scientific knowledge. HHMI selects outstanding researchers for HHMI Investigator positions, employs them for seven-year terms that may be renewed through a peer-review process, and provides them with long-term research support that gives them the freedom to follow their scientific curiosity and intuition.
