Meet the 2016 Class
The Pew Scholars Program in the Biomedical Sciences provides funding to young investigators of outstanding promise in science relevant to the advancement of human health. The program makes grants to selected academic institutions to support the independent research of outstanding individuals who are in their first few years of their appointment at the assistant professor level.

Biomedical Programs Bolster Promising Early-Career Scientists
June 07, 2016
Over the last 30 years, Pew’s biomedical programs have supported more than 800 innovative, early-career researchers who are working to advance human health. More than just providing financial support, the programs give scientists the opportunity to learn from a network of established researchers through collaboration and mentorship.
In this video, scholars and fellows describe how the mentorship component of Pew’s biomedical programs has fostered their research and professional development.

In the March issue of Science, Roberto Zoncu and his colleagues describe their discovery of a process by which lysosomal proteins relay the availability of cholesterol via a nutrient sensor called mTOR to control cell growth. Read More
Researchers today are opening doors to understand the molecular driving forces behind communal behaviors and tools that dominate social life. While scientists have used fruit flies and worms as models to understand fundamental questions about human behaviors and development, Daniel Kronauer, Ph.D., a 2015 Pew scholar at The Rockefeller University, uses ants to learn how complex societies are...
