|Student Researcher Jabriah Geddy, an HHMI Research Scholar from Lincoln University participating in the Summer Scholars Program|
The current HHMI grant, awarded in 2008 to the Biology and Physics departments, is focused on the integration of biology, physics, and quantitative analysis. The grant focuses on four components: 1) Student research and broadening access to science; 2) New and current faculty development; 3) Curriculum and laboratory development; and 4) Outreach.
The grant is administered by an Advisory Committee, consisting of the Program Director and faculty from the Biology and Physics departments who chair subcommittees for each component.
HHMI also has also supported Phage Safari, a freshmen biology lab focused on bacteriophage genomics.
