Howard Hughes' grant for basic science

The UC Davis School of Medicine is among 13 innovative graduate programs in the nation to receive funds from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute to foster the translation of basic science discoveries into new medical treatments. The goal of the $10 million national initiative is to train scientists with a better understanding of medicine so they are better equipped to conduct research that benefits the diagnosis and treatment of human disease.

Known as the Integrating Medicine into Basic Science scholars program, the training builds on basic Ph.D. education through clinical experiences and rotations; new courses; and small-group, interdisciplinary, active learning experiences with medical students, basic scientists and physician educators.
