Stalwart supporters Paul and Andria Heafy have immersed themselves in Whitehead Institute science. They have come to know Whitehead Institute Fellow Silvia Rouskin and have been so inspired by her groundbreaking research that they have provided the Institute with more than $2 million to support her as the Andria S. and Paul G. Heafy Fellow at Whitehead Institute, as well as to support her trailblazing research in HIV.
It’s a pretty incredible place. For us, this is about seeing the next generation, which is one of the things Whitehead Institute does so well. They don’t just take people. They find the right people, and let them run. It’s just unbelievable to have that kind of environment that fosters such brilliance and unfettered imagination.
