HHMI and GBMF name 15 ASPB members as investigators

support to develop their research in creative, new directions. Investigators will continue to be based at their host institution and retain their faculty position, but HHMI will provide full salary and benefits to the investigators with research support coming from both HHMI and GBMF.

These plant scientists recognize the freedom this award gives them to follow the science wherever it leads. "It gives me the opportunity to think broadly in what needs to be done in my field and go after it," said Jorge Dubcovsky of the University of California, Davis, "rather than spending my time trying to write proposalsThe HHMI and GBMF long-term support gives me a lot of flexibility to address important questions."

Dominique Bergmann of Stanford University, who will deliver the Shull Award lecture at ASPB's Plant Biology 2011 meeting in Minneapolis this August, emphasized that she can do experiments that her lab has only discussed informally, "but none of us thought we'd get the chance to do." Krishna Niyogi of the University of California, Berkeley, and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory said he appreciates that "HHMI and GBMF are recognizing the importance of plant science and enabling research that would likely be considered too 'high-risk' by most grant panels."

The investigators are committed to demonstrating the value of this investment in plant science. Jeff Dangl of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill explained that "to whom much is given, much is expected. We have a responsibility to make the most of this wonderful opportunity and to leverage our success across our community." Bergmann added that the "effect of the [HHMI-GBMF Investigator] positions will go far beyond the 15 who got them."

Joe Ecker of the Salk Institute for Biological Studies said that the HHMI-GBMF Investigator program "sends a strong message that plants are a really great system of study and that kno
