Francesca Burgos, postdoctoral scholar in the lab of MCB Professor Carlos Bustamante, is a member of the 2018 class of Pew Latin American Fellows in the Biomedical Sciences. Her research examines the three-dimensional folding patterns of RNA molecules during their synthesis.

Fellows are awarded two years of funding to study under some of the world's leading biomedical scientists in the United States. According to Rebecca W. Rimel, Pew’s president and CEO, these fellows “make up an exemplary group committed to building biomedical expertise in Latin America and advancing human health around the globe.”
