2 Pew Scholars Receive NIH Support for Collaborative Research

Pew scholars at the University of Delaware will receive support from the National Institutes of Health’s Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence program, which promotes collaborative, interactive efforts by establishing centers for researchers with complementary skill sets.

Led by chemistry and biochemistry professor Joseph M. Fox, Pew scholars April M. Kloxin (2013) and Catherine L. Grimes (2014) will conduct research on Huntington’s and Crohn’s diseases, respectively. Their projects are among five supported by the grant, with the collective goal of identifying key molecules for drug discovery.

“These projects are tied together under the concept of molecular discovery to improve human health. Through this center, we will be discovering new molecules that can be used to study, and ultimately to treat, human disease,” said Fox.

Agenda for America

A collection of resources to help federal, state, and local decision-makers set an achievable agenda for all Americans

Quick View

Data-driven policymaking is not just a tool for finding new solutions for emerging challenges, it makes government more effective and better able to serve the public interest. In the coming months, President Joe Biden and the 117th Congress will tackle a number of environmental, health, public safety, and fiscal and economic issues—nearly all of them complicated by the COVID-19 pandemic. To help solve specific, systemic problems in a nonpartisan fashion, Pew has compiled a series of briefings and recommendations based on our research, technical assistance, and advocacy work across America.

States of Innovation

Data-driven state policy innovations across America

Quick View

Data-driven policymaking is not just a tool for finding new solutions for difficult challenges. When states serve their traditional role as laboratories of innovation, they increase the American people’s confidence that the government they choose—no matter the size—can be effective, responsive, and in the public interest.
