Dr. Ed Egelman just received a very prestigious MIRA award from the NIH.  This award is given after a very competitive review to a subset of scientists who have >2 R01s from the NIGMS. NIGMS adopted this  scheme to make long term commitments to the best scientists on its portfolio.  MIRA grants are substantial, are awarded for five years (instead of the usual four) and rare.  Congratulations, Ed!
