Biomedical Research

Pew has a decades-long commitment to support groundbreaking research by promising early-career biomedical researchers in the United States and Latin America.

These initiatives are part of our broader effort to support high-quality, rigorous science that improves human health and informs sound policy making. Also, we partner with leading authorities in science, health, the environment and associated fields to conduct research and advance fact-based solutions to compelling problems.

Two core programs of our emerging science work are the Pew Scholars Program in the Biomedical Sciences and the Pew Latin American Fellows Program in the Biomedical Sciences, funding outstanding, competitively selected scientists.

  • Pew Latin American Fellows Program in the Biomedical Sciences

    The Pew Latin American Fellows Program in the Biomedical Sciences has helped more than 200 promising young biomedical scholars from Central and South America advance research in their countries.
  • Pew Scholars Program in the Biomedical Sciences

    The Pew Scholars Program in the Biomedical Sciences supports promising early-career scientists in the health sciences—particularly young researchers with innovative approaches and ideas.
