PHILADELPHIA (June 13, 2013)-Ten scientists were named Pew Latin American Fellows in the Biomedical Sciences by The Pew Charitable Trusts today. The fellowship provides support to advance grantees' research, enables them to study with prominent U.S. scientists, and invests seed capital to help them establish laboratories in their home countries. It provides flexible funding to postdoctoral researchers investigating some of the world's most troubling health problems-including diabetes, schizophrenia, and cancer.

"The quest for impactful biomedical discoveries is a global effort, and our 22-year history of promoting an international exchange of scientific ideas is a proud one-with more than 200 Latin American scientists receiving support," said Rebecca W. Rimel, president and CEO of Pew. "I have no doubt that this year's class will be a powerful force in advancing scientific and intellectual capital throughout the Americas."

The Pew Latin American Fellows Program was launched in 1991 to cultivate outstanding researchers and to strengthen the infrastructure of biomedical science in Latin American countries. The program provides each fellow with salary support for two years of postdoctoral training in the laboratory of an established researcher in the United States. In some cases, those mentors come from the community of Pew Scholars in the Biomedical Sciences-the sister program to the Pew Latin American Fellows Program. The scholars program has for 28 years supported promising U.S. scientists early in their careers.

The Latin American fellowships are designated by a distinguished national advisory committee chaired by Torsten N. Wiesel, M.D., president emeritus of Rockefeller University and a 1981 Nobel laureate in physiology or medicine.

"Scientific discoveries and innovations are, as we all know, not limited by geographic boundaries. This year's Pew Latin American Fellows are among the most creative and committed scientific students
