21 of America's top early-career scientists named 2010 Pew Scholars in the biomedical sciences
Date:6/16/2010

PHILADELPHIAThe Pew Charitable Trusts today named 21 talented scientists as Pew Scholars in the Biomedical Sciences. The program enables scientists to take calculated risks, expand their research and explore unanticipated leads. Scholars receive $240,000 over four years and gain inclusion into a select community of scientists that includes three Nobel Prize winners, three MacArthur Fellows and two recipients of the Albert Lasker Medical Research Award.

Celebrating its 25th anniversary, the program has invested more than $125 million to fund close to 500 scholars. Many of the nation's best early-career scientistsworking in all areas of physical and life sciences related to biomedical researchapply to the rigorously competitive program. Applicants are nominated by one of 155 invited institutions and demonstrate excellence and innovation in their research.

"Twenty-five years ago, The Pew Charitable Trusts identified a tremendous opportunity to impact the world of science by supporting the most promising young investigators and encouraging them to pursue their best ideas without restrictions," said Rebecca W. Rimel, president and CEO of The Pew Charitable Trusts. "Motivating scientists at this point in their careers is essential to advancing discovery and innovation, and Pew is honored to continue its commitment to this cadre of high-quality researchers."

This year, through the generosity of Kathryn W. Davis, Pew is able to expand its Biomedical Scholars program to include an additional twenty outstanding assistant professor level researchers to be named Pew Scholars over the next four years. Aligned with Mrs. Davis' interest in identifying the causes of and discovering a cure for glaucoma, the additional Pew Scholars, supported by this $5.6 million initiative, will have tremendous potential for uncovering vital clues to many debilitating ocular diseases.
