Congratulations to Dr. Gaurav Gaiha, who has been selected as the recipient of the 2023 Howard M. Goodman Fellowship! This award is given by Massachusetts General Hospital’s Executive Committee On Research (ECOR) to outstanding independent young scientists who have demonstrated the potential to rise to a leadership position in their chosen field.
The Fellowship honors Howard M. Goodman, founder of the MGH Department of Molecular Biology in 1982 and department chief until 2004. More info from ECOR: “Dr. Goodman’s guiding principle was that great science should not be encumbered by the continual need to convince the world concerning the merit of an individual scientific vision. He believed in choosing scientists of demonstrated excellence and giving them the resources to pursue their goals with vigor, a model that was resoundingly successful. Each year Goodman Fellows are chosen from the MGH community to honor that legacy and to support the pursuit of excellence by young scientists of uncommon passion and ability.”
Dr. Gaiha will present his award-winning research to the MGH research community and its scientific advisory members at MGH’s annual Scientific Advisory Committee meeting. He will also be featured in ECOR’s 2023 Celebration of Science book.
Congratulations to Dan Barouch, MD, PhD, one of this year's recipients of the King Faisal Prize!
Researchers used a new single-cell proteogenomic profiling technique, PheP-Seq, to characterize HIV reservoir cells. They found specific biomarkers associated with resistance to immune responses.
