Hope HHMI 2012

News for December 2012

        The HHMI 2012 steering committee has been busily working on defining the logistical details and guidelines for all of the programs supported by the new HHMI grant. Take a look at the program descriptions and see if any projects you have in mind for the next year mesh with our programs. In addition to being able to join the HHMI lunch conversations about these topics, you might even be able to utilize HHMI funds to support your projects.
