Meet the 2016 Class
The Pew Latin American Fellows Program in the Biomedical Sciences provides support for young scientists from Latin America to receive postdoctoral training in the United States. The program gives these individuals an opportunity to further their scientific knowledge by promoting exchange and collaboration between investigators in the United States and Latin America resulting in advances in research in Latin America.

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.

There is no question that exercise does the body good: Physical activity can increase muscle strength and agility while promoting healthy weight and good heart function. Now, a new study on mice, conducted by 2014 Pew fellow Matias A. Alvarez-Saavedra, Ph.D., adds to a growing body of evidence that regular exercise confers more than just physical benefits—it could also have tremendous... Read More
