Our selection process
BroadIgnite is committed to engaging a wide diversity of Broad scientific leaders and awardees. In this aim, we recently launched the expanded BroadIgnite Committee (BIC) to help evaluate candidates from a broader array of scientific areas; serve as mentors to awardees; and assist with project ideas, research planning, and professional development. The BIC is chaired by Todd Golub, chief scientific officer and director of the Cancer Program at the Broad; co-chaired by Jesse Boehm, the scientific director of the Broad’s Cancer Dependency Map Initiative, and Anna Greka, the director of the Kidney Disease Initiative at the Broad; and comprised of the eight institutional leaders listed below:
BroadIgnite partners with donors at many different levels to support groundbreaking science. This support has been catalytic for our awardees’ research, and your contribution will allow us to invest in additional bold projects.
