Dr. Guillermo Eastman, who just completed his PhD in Uruguay, was named as a Pew Latin American Fellow to work in the Bloom lab beginning August 1. "Ten postdoctoral fellows from six Latin American countries—Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, Peru, and Uruguay—will receive two years of funding to conduct research in laboratories across the United States and will work under the mentorship of prominent biomedical scientists, including members of the Pew Scholars Program in the Biomedical Sciences. Dr. Eastman will investigate how the two main toxic molecular species that are hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease damage neurons by selectively altering protein synthesis".
