About Howard Hughes Medical Institute
HHMI, a non-profit medical research organization that ranks as one of the nation's largest philanthropies, plays a powerful role in advancing biomedical research and science education in the U.S. In the past two decades HHMI has made investments of more than $8.3 billion for the support, training, and education of the nation's most creative and promising scientists. The Institute commits almost $700 million a year for research and distributes $80 million in grant support for science education.

Furthermore, HHMI needed secure project areas to increase engagement and foster collaboration among teams within the organization.
