Portuguese science scores high with American funder
Date:1/24/2012

Five of the 28 scientists considered "people who, 10 years from now () will be the scientific leaders in their countries", by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, are working in Portugal. The four Portuguese and one American researchers are based at the Instituto Gulbenkian de Cincia (IGC), the Instituto de Tecnologia Qumica e Biolgica (ITQB), the Instituto de Medicina Molecular (IMM) and the Champalimaud Foundation (Neuroscience Programme).

The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) is one of the major philanthropies in the world, well-known for its central role in advancing research in such important areas of human health as cancer, AIDS research, heart disease and diabetes. Under the banner 'people, not projects', HHMI supports approximately 330 researchers, including 13 Nobel Prize winners and 147 members of the National Academy of Sciences.

HHMI's newest awardees were chosen from 760 candidates, from 18 countries. Each researcher secures USD650,000 in funding (just over Euro513,000), over a five-year period, to carry out research in such diverse areas as neuroscience, parasitology, ageing and bacterial communication. All have trained in the United States, have been leaders of independent research group for less than seven years (thus being considered 'early career scientists'), have made significant contributions to their fields of research and proposed ambitious and high-impact research programmes in this competition.

Of the twelve countries hosting awardees, Portugal ranks second in terms of number of scientists, ex-aequo with Spain; China is the country with the largest number of awardees (seven). The scientists working in Portugal speak as one in underscoring the resounding success of the 'Portuguese' applications: "For a relatively small scientific community, such as the one in this country, to have five out of 28 awardees is a clear signal of the standing of scientists working in Portugal. Furthermore, it is revealing of
