The Howard Hughes Medical Institute is today naming 50 top early career scientists to receive special six-year appointments -- in a program on which the institute will spend $200 million -- to focus on bold, high-risk ideas without having to worry about applying for research support. The program is a response to widespread concerns that young scientists need to be so focused on grant applications that they opt for "safe" projects over those that could transform areas of study. Details on the award winners may be found here.
