15% of HHMI Faculty Scholars Use Benchling!

We’re thrilled to announce that the heads of 13 labs using Benchling have been appointed faculty scholars by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the Simons Foundation, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. These awards recognize early-career scientists who have great potential to make unique contributions to their field.

Congratulations to all of the winners, and especially to those who are members of the Benchling community.
