Award Supports Research—The Pew Charitable Trusts have named Dr. Erika Garay to the Pew Latin American Fellow Program in the Biomedical Sciences. Dr. Garay is a native of Mexico and one of only 10 scientists to receive the fellowship, which will support her research on aging in the lab of Dr. Ana Maria Cuervo and help her set up her own laboratory in Mexico. Dr. Garay studies how aging affects the cell’s ability to remove damaged molecules. She wants to identify the components in cells that regulate debris clearance. This clearance becomes less efficient as people age, and its failure has been linked to age-related diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. Finding what regulates debris clearing may lead to therapies for age-related diseases. Dr. Garay is a postdoctoral researcher in Dr. Cuervo’s lab. Dr. Cuervo is professor of developmental and molecular biology, of anatomy and structural biology and of medicine, as well as co-director of Einstein’s Institute for Aging Research and the Robert and Renée Belfer Chair for the Study of Neurodegenerative Diseases.
