Keystone Symposia appoints 5 Fellows as part of diversity in life science initiative
Date:12/11/2009

SILVERTHORNE, CO December 11, 2009 Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology is pleased to announce the appointment of five new Keystone Symposia Fellows for 2010. Launched in 2008, this unique program enables five talented early-career life scientists (postdoctoral trainees or assistant professors) to shadow the Keystone Symposia program development process for one year. Fellows are selected based on their research promise as well as a commitment to promoting diversity in the biomedical and life sciences. As such, the program is a critical component of Keystone Symposia's initiative to increase participation by scientists from underrepresented minority groups in all aspects of its conferences.

The five newly appointed fellows are Dana Crawford, Ph.D., Assistant Professor at Vanderbilt University's Center for Human Genetics Research; Jameel Dennis, Ph.D., Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology at Virginia Commonwealth University; Dana-Lynn T. Koomoa, Ph.D., Postdoctoral Fellow at the Cancer Research Center of Hawai'i; Fatima Rivas, Ph.D., Postdoctoral Fellow at The Scripps Research Institute; and David Wilson, Ph.D., Senior Research Scientist at the National Institute of Aging/National Institutes of Health.

Many of these early-career life scientists bring unique perspectives as members of underrepresented minority groups themselves. Dr. David Wilson, for example, is a Native American who was raised on a Navajo Nation reservation and strives to encourage younger Native Americans to pursue careers in science. "Diversity at the bench gives rise to diverse ideas pushing towards a common goal," he says. Dr. Koomoa, a native Hawaiian, believes that "bringing people with diverse perspectives together will drive innovation and enhance biomedical and life science research."

The five new fellows will participate in teleconferences, scientists study group sessions, online research topic review/analysis s
