Congratulations to Héctor Torres Vera, one of 51 new HHMI Gilliam Fellows!

“The Gilliam Program invests in graduate students from populations historically excluded and underrepresented in science so that they are prepared to become scientific leaders. “To support the development of these students as future scientific leaders, it’s crucial to provide high-quality mentoring, financial support, an inclusive lab environment, and a supportive community,” says David Asai, senior director for science education. “True change will not happen on campuses without the support and commitment of faculty and institutional leaders,” Asai says.” (
