Top young Latin-American scientists named Pew Biomedical Fellows
Date:6/13/2012

PHILADELPHIA Ten young researchers were named Pew Latin American Fellows in the Biomedical Sciences today by The Pew Charitable Trusts. For these scientists, who have dedicated their careers to finding solutions for some of the world's most troubling health problems, this fellowship will provide support that will further their research, enable them to work with colleagues in the United States, and increase scientific knowledge throughout their home region.

"For over two decades, the Latin American Fellows Program in the Biomedical Sciences has provided outstanding, early-career scientists from Latin American countries with advanced training opportunities and has assisted them in bringing their knowledge and skills back to their nations," said Rebecca W. Rimel, president and CEO of The Pew Charitable Trusts. "We welcome the new class of fellows into a cohort of talented scientists who are leaders in their fields and who are contributing to the growth of a vibrant, interdisciplinary scientific community."

The Pew Latin American Fellows in the Biomedical Sciences program provides salary support over two years for postdoctoral-level, Latin American scientists to work in top laboratories in the United States. When finished with the U.S.-based research, Fellows receive additional funding to establish labs in their home countries.

While the number of foreign doctorate recipients staying in the United States has never been highermore than 60 percent, according to the National Science Foundationover 70 percent of Pew Latin American Fellows return to their home country to help build the scientific infrastructure throughout the hemisphere.

The selection is made by a distinguished national advisory committee, chaired by Dr. Torsten N. Wiesel, president emeritus of Rockefeller University and 1981 Nobel Laureate in Physiology or Medicine.
