2020 Class of Hartwell Fellows

Memphis, TN, July 15, 2021 - The Hartwell Foundation announced its 2020 class of Hartwell Fellows, which provides funding to US citizens for postdoctoral training in biomedical science at select research institutions in the United States. The Fellowships offer support for two years at $50,000 direct cost per year to support scientists in the early stages of biomedical research careers by enabling them to pursue further specialized training as part of their professional development.

For each Hartwell Individual Biomedical Research Award that a participating institution receives in the annual Hartwell competition, the institution may designate one postdoctoral candidate of their choice from areas of biomedical science that exemplify the values of the Foundation. With twelve Hartwell Investigators in the Class of 2020 representing ten institutions, the following individuals will receive a Hartwell Fellowship:
