Janelia Research Campus started as an idea sketched on the back of a napkin. Today, it stands as a research campus where scientists ask, learn, and collaborate on some of neurobiology’s biggest unknowns. How did Janelia go from a concept to bustling campus? Part of the answer lies in the first group of scientists, the pioneers of our research, who took a chance on Janelia. They began to build the foundation of scientists, staff, visitors, and friends behind the collaborative culture that drives our science forward.
Janelia Research Campus is HHMI’s pioneering research center in Ashburn, Virginia, where scientists pursue fundamental neuroscience and imaging in a uniquely innovative, collaborative atmosphere.
