UMass Medical School scientist named 2012 Pew Latin-American Fellow in the Biomedical Sciences
Date:6/13/2012

WORCESTER, MA Juan I. Fuxman Bass, PhD, a postdoctoral scholar at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, was named a 2012 Pew Latin American Fellow in the Biomedical Sciences today by The Pew Charitable Trusts. The program provides support for young scientists from Latin America to pursue postdoctoral training in the United States and establish their own labs upon returning to their home countries. Dr. Fuxman Bass joins 10 other researchers named to this year's class.

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

"Being named a Pew Latin American Fellow is a tremendous honor and a huge opportunity for me," said Dr. Fuxman Bass, a postdoctoral scholar in the lab of Marian Walhout, PhD, professor of molecular medicine and co-director of the Program in Systems Biology, where he is studying the complex, cell-to-cell communication system that the immune system uses to tailor its defense against pathogens. "There aren't many labs working on systems biology in Argentina. This fellowship provides the training and start-up funding I'll need to establish my own lab and advance the field of systems biology in Argentina."

To coordinate an effective defense against pathogens, immune cells communicate with each other by releasing chemical signals called cytokines. The production of these signals is tightly regulated by the immune system and is greatly dependent on
