Merkin Family Foundation to fund next generation of Broad Institute scientists
Date:4/18/2012

lows. Some of the research supported by the new commitment will focus on stem cell biology, regenerative medicine and neurodegenerative disease, areas Dr. Merkin cares about deeply. The new commitment builds on an earlier three-year gift from Dr. Merkin, which made possible the Richard Merkin Foundation for Stem Cell Research at the Broad Institute, launched in 2009. The earlier gift supported young scientists at the Broad Institute, including Aviv Regev, John Rinn, Alex Meissner, and Benjamin Ebert among others, as they pursued a deeper understanding of stem cells and stem cell biology. The three-year gift resulted in a number of scientific advances, as well as more than a dozen papers related to these areas of research.

"This wonderful gift will make it possible for young scientists to be bold and creative, and to pursue their own vision," said Dr. David Altshuler, deputy director and chief academic officer at the Broad Institute. "The greater scientific community will ultimately benefit, as the Fellows make discoveries that can move an entire field forward."
