the Giovanni Armenise-Harvard Foundation funds basic research in biomedicine and agriculture. its purpose is to fund laboratories, professorships, and fellowships for young researchers at Harvard Medical School in Boston, where it is based, and at Italian research institutions. through the Career Development Awards program, it supports researchers in training for a laboratory in Italy.
