The Whitehead Fellows program is renowned for preparing emerging leaders in biomedical research and education. Two recent Fellows who made significant accomplishments while at the Institute are continuing that track record.
Whitehead Institute Founding Member Harvey Lodish was co-recipient of the 2021 MITx Prize for Teaching and Learning in MOOCs, and Whitehead Institute Member Sebastian Lourido has been named as one of the Burroughs Wellcome Fund’s 2021 Investigators in the Pathogenesis of Infectious Disease.
The Whitehead Institute community is saddened by the passing of our longtime friend, Joan Suit, PhD. Our deep condolences go out to her beloved husband, Herman D. Suit, MD, PhD, and to their extended family.
Whitehead Institute director Ruth Lehmann announced the appointment of two dynamic new Members: Olivia Corradin, currently a Whitehead Fellow, and Sinisa Hrvatin, currently an instructor and postdoctoral fellow at Harvard Medical School.
