The goal of the Hanna H. Gray Fellows Program is to reach, recruit, and retain individuals from the diverse talent pool of early career scientists in the United States. Through their successful careers, HHMI Hanna Gray Fellows will become leaders in academic research who inspire, train, and mentor future generations of scientists. Applicants are basic science researchers and physician-scientists in the biomedical and life science disciplines. The Institute pledged to select up to 25 Hanna Gray Fellows annually. Fellows receive funding to support their postdoctoral training and may continue to receive funding during their early career years as independent faculty. Each fellow participates in professional development, mentorship, and networking with their community of peers and the broader HHMI community of scientists across career stages.
