Dr. Baumann leads an eight-person team at the Stowers Institute composed of postdoctoral researchers, graduate students, and scientific staff. Dr. Baumann's laboratory has published ten papers in peer-reviewed journals, including four papers of remarkable influence in the field of chromosome dynamics in the last two years.
"This support from HHMI creates a fantastic opportunity for us to expand our research into new areas while at the same time building on our findings from the past few years," said Dr. Baumann.
"Peter Baumann's HHMI appointment is a significant landmark in his successful career as a laboratory leader, and it is a source of pride for the Stowers Institute," said William B. Neaves, Ph.D., President and CEO. "Selection by the HHMI after rigorous, comprehensive review represents an enormous vote of confidence in a biomedical scientist, and all of us at the Institute are delighted that Dr. Baumann will have the additional resources provided by this appointment to accelerate his innovative research."
Kevin Eggan, Ph.D., Assistant Investigator with the Stowers Medical Institute (SMI), also was named an Early Career Scientist by HHMI. SMI was established in 2005 in Cambridge, Massachusetts by Jim and Virginia Stowers.
Dr. Baumann also holds an appointment as Assistant Professor in the Department of Molecular and Integrative Physiology at The University of Kansas School of Medicine.
