Marvin Tanenbaum has been chosen by the The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) as an International Research Scholar: an exceptional early-career scientists poised to advance biomedical research across the globe. He will receive a total amount of $650,000 spread over five years to fund his projects.
Tanenbaum: “The HHMI says they ‘fund people not projects’, so in a way it is an acknowledgement of the succes of my earlier projects”
Tanenbaum will use the money to further develop his line of experiments that study temporal and spatial control of gene expression, using cutting edge single molecule microscopy and novel types of genetic engineering. Read more about his research on his lab website.
