HHMI has established a leading position in public engagement as an organization with both a deep understanding of biological science and education and professional media production capabilities.
Research Jan 30 2019. Lattice Light Sheet Microscope This microscope uses a Bessel beam to illuminate a sample with light sheets that are sufficiently thin to achieve isotropic resolution high-speed 3D fluorescent imaging. As a result, we miss talent that we otherwise might have in science. Neuropixels Technology Ready for Release A transformative technology for detecting and recording neural activity in the brain is now available for researchers to purchase through imec, a leading nanoelectronics research center in Belgium.
Education Education HHMI believes every student and citizen can experience science in a meaningful way. Mapping the Chromatin Landscape of Human Cancers A novel technique has helped researchers find gene switches that could form the basis for new cancer detection techniques and treatments.

Stability, affinity and chromatic variants of the glutamate sensor iGluSnFR.
UGP Home. Featured Announcement. These bright and photostable fluorescent labels enable imaging and tracking of individual molecules inside living cells. Ahrens Lab. A new genetic technique is fast and 10 to 100 times more accurate than previous diagnostics. These split-GAL4 driver Drosophila lines allow the generation of cell-type specific gene expression.
HHMI catalyzes discovery in basic biomedical research, generating knowledge about the structure and function of living systems at the level of molecules, cells, behaviors, and interactions, with potential to benefit humanity.
Brain-wide organization of neuronal activity and convergent sensorimotor transformations in larval zebrafish.
We see potential for significant changes in academic culture, from science education to the research environment. Researchers can now download and browse the data in three dimensions. Tweets by USBrainAlliance. Education Education HHMI believes every student and citizen can experience science in a meaningful way.
To do that, we need the varying perspectives of people who come from different races, ethnicities, genders, training backgrounds, and more. The Alliance.
Research Dec 17 2018. In a new Nature World View column, David Asai, HHMI's senior director for science education, explains that laboratory heads need training, support, and accountability to connect people across cultures.
We believe HHMI has an opportunity to collaborate with other scientific leaders to address these issues in concrete ways. At the same time, they are not rewarded for taking time to teach, mentor, and serve the scientific community.
