Yale’s Andrew Wang selected as Pew Scholar
Yale’s Andrew Wang, assistant professor of internal medicine (rheumatology, allergy & immunology) and immunobiology, has been selected to join the Pew Scholars Program in the Biomedical Sciences, the Pew Charitable Trusts announced June 15.
Wang joins 21 other early career researchers in biomedical sciences who will receive four years of funding from the program, which rewards young scientists pursuing promising research.
Wang was honored for his work in understanding how the environment interacts with inflammatory responses to change the trajectory of disease courses.
“Pew is proud to support these promising researchers as they conduct world-class research to address biomedicine’s most complex questions,” said Rebecca W. Rimel, Pew’s president and CEO.
More than 1,000 scientists have received early career support from Pew since the program began in 1985.
