LOS ANGELES, CA—International law firm Withers has advised scientist, founder and philanthropist Ross M. Brown on a ground-breaking project to establish the Brown Institute for Basic Science at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), with the university taking on the administration of the Brown Investigator Award.
The Award is designed to spur transformational discoveries in basic sciences that will ultimately benefit humanity. It aims to fill a funding gap for established researchers who have bold and creative ideas for which traditional grants and funding aren’t available.
The Institute will grant eight or more awards each year, of up to $2m each. Caltech, whose scientists have previously received the Award, are no longer eligible now that Caltech is administering the program.
