Congratulations to Dr. Catherine Leimkuhler Grimes, Ph.D., for being named a Pew Scholar in the Biomedical sciences by The Pew Charitable Trusts.

Grimes is one of 22 outstanding early-career researchers selected nationwide for the honor this year, and the third consecutive UD researcher to receive the award in the past three years - a record matched only by the University of California, Berkeley, and the University of California, San Francisco.

She joins a community of more than 500 Pew scholars whose ranks include multiple recipients of Nobel Prizes, Lasker Awards and MacArthur Fellowships.

“Pew has supported scientific innovation through its scholars program for 29 years. Time and again, this investment has fueled groundbreaking discoveries that hold the promise of better health for millions of people,” said Rebecca W. Rimel, president and CEO of Pew. “We are pleased to welcome the newest class of scholars to a community that continues to yield extraordinary findings in the field of bioscience.”
