Why UVa will spend $20 million on 6 professors

The university's pricey investment in the six researchers will be worth it, top administrators said, because it will draw millions in public and private research grants, could generate profits from new discoveries and will help attract top-tier junior faculty members and graduate students.
"This program brings to the university a number of people who are very well known in their particular fields," said Dr. Arthur "Tim" Garson, UVa's provost. "And they are capable of tremendous collaboration across the university. Their talent will be leveraged throughout UVa."
The six superstars will "seed" UVa's scientific research efforts, Garson said. Eventually, their areas of expertise - genomics, biomedical engineering, nanotechnology and more - will be filled out at UVa with additional faculty members, graduate students and postdoctoral researchers.
