tion is demonstrating to life science diversity in making such a program possible."

Dr. Elizabeth Boylan , Program Director at the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, commented: "I am very pleased that we were able to make this grant as part of our higher-education portfolio focusing on professional advancement for underrepresented populations. We value the opportunity to assist early-career scientists in the acquisition of key professional skills, and look forward to learning about outcomes vis-a-vis standard career parameters as well as engagement with diversity matters on their home campuses and in their professional societies."

This is the second grant for Keystone Symposia from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. Some of Keystone Symposia's earliest diversity initiatives were launched with the help of a Sloan grant received in April 2008. Subsequent efforts have been funded with the help of the MARC grant as well as corporate support from Amgen, Biogen Idec and Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research.
