Summary

Best known as a virtual institute, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) of Chevy Chase, Maryland, will soon make a vast expansion in bricks and mortar. The heavyweight biomedical organization this week announced it will spend $500 million over 10 years on a suburban research center that will develop cutting-edge bioinformatics, imaging, and other tools. It will also serve as an incubator for visiting scientists--even those who aren't HHMI investigators.
