Aviv Regev recently Named HHMI Early Career Scientist

Aviv Regev, associate professor of biology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a core member of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, was recently named a Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) investigator. Regev was among 27 biomedical scientists selected as new HHMI investigators from 1,155 applicants. According to HHMI, the initiative represents an investment in basic biomedical research of approximately $150 million over the next five years. This support gives HHMI investigators the freedom to explore new research directions.

Regev, an ISCB member since 2002, was awarded the ISCB Overton Prize in 2008. Her research centers on understanding how complex molecular networks function and evolve in the face of genetic and environmental changes, over time-scales ranging from minutes to millions of years. She was named an Early Career Scientist of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute in 2009 and is a recipient of the NIH Director's Pioneer Award and a Sloan fellowship from the Sloan Foundation.

ISCB congratulates Aviv on her recent achievements and on her selection to this distinguished group of researchers.
