Keystone Symposia offers scholarships to trainees at the graduate student and postdoc levels to attend Keystone Symposia conferences to present their poster research and network with peers and senior scientists.

The Keystone Symposia/Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS) Scholars Program provides UR postdocs and graduate students who attend the ABRCMS meeting that year to compete for an opportunity to receive a travel award to a Keystone Symposia conference of their choice.

The DLSP Office works with a number of organizations to keep our trainees informed and fully participatory in their own professional development. Groups like the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB), the National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Research Mentoring Network (NRMN), and the Leadership Alliance give Keystone Symposia Fellows a chance to network with peers, receive additional training, and build strong leadership skills.

Most of all, the DLSP strive to showcase the brilliant scientific talent within the diversity portfolio. Please watch a sampling of just some of our DLSP activities over 2016: See Fellows from different cohorts team up to provide guidance on “What Trainees Can Expect When Attending a Keystone Symposia Conference” to discussions about the value of effective mentoring for career advancement for a Fellow who is working in industry, and research presentations to the larger science community!
