Whitehead Institute researchers receive an HHMI Gilliam Fellowship
Doctoral researcher Anaïs Tsai and Whitehead Institute director Ruth Lehmann are recipients of a 2023 Howard Hughes Medical Institute Gilliam Fellowship for Advanced Study.
The Gilliam Fellowship — which is awarded jointly to graduate students and their advisors — invests in young researchers from populations historically excluded and underrepresented in science, so that they are prepared to become scientific leaders.
Tsai is a doctoral candidate at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Working under Lehmann’s guidance, Tsai is researching how germline transcription is regulated by a pioneer transcription factor during embryonic development.
