It is with pride that we launch a new website, with a new look, to help mark the 20th anniversary of the Giovanni Armenise-Harvard Foundation.

In the  past two decades, we have worked to make reality the dream of our founder, fostering excellence in basic science research in Italy and the U.S.  Perusal of these pages will attest that we have made a great start; I especially commend to you the video on the home page, which introduces our group of Career Development Awardees, who are adding to the world of scientific discovery.  Likewise the section on the Junior Faculty Grant Program at Harvard – all examples of our intention to invest in promising researchers at the start of their careers.  This anniversary reminds us to take a moment to look back at what we have accomplished, giving new resolve for future work.  All of us at the Foundation invite you to take a look and help us celebrate!
