Meet the 2014 Class
The Pew-Stewart Scholars Program for Cancer Research is a national initiative designed to support promising early career scientists whose research will accelerate discovery and advance progress to a cure for cancer. The program—funded by The Alexander and Margaret Stewart Trust and administered by Pew—will support five investigators each year. The Stewart Trust has invested in innovative, cutting edge cancer research and scientists for over 15 years. Through this partnership, The Pew-Stewart Scholars for Cancer Research have tremendous potential to solve some of cancer’s weightiest challenges.
