Twenty-two of America’s most promising scientists have been named Pew Scholars in the Biomedical Sciences by the Pew Charitable Trusts, including Harvard University’s Sharad Ramanathan, assistant professor of molecular and cellular biology.

The 2011 Pew Scholars will join a select community that includes MacArthur Fellows, recipients of the Albert Lasker Medical Research Award, and three Nobel Prize winners.  Research by the new class of scholars is related to many human diseases ranging from Alzheimer’s to diabetes to ocular degeneration. The program encourages early-career scientists to advance research that leads to important medical breakthroughs and treatments.
