Kathleen L. Gould, Ph.D., professor of Cell & Developmental Biology, has been appointed to another five-year term as a Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) investigator. Gould has been a member of the select group of investigators since 1994.

HHMI is one of the world’s largest philanthropies, funding laboratories throughout the United States and grants programs throughout the world. HHMI currently employs about 350 investigators at universities and academic health centers around the country.

Gould’s research focuses on how cells progress through the cell cycle – a coordinated series of events that leads to cell division. Her laboratory uses the yeast S. pombe as a model organism and employs biochemical, molecular, cytological and genetic techniques to study the cell division process.
