Mentorship Matters: Keystone Symposia Fellows Program

Dr. Diana Citelly interviews her mentor Dr. Curt Harris. This dynamic exchange between the two colleagues highlights their values, drive and their commitment to excellence. It also underscores Keystone Symposia’s Fellows program and it’s commitment to fostering mentorship to the next generation scientists.

The Keystone Symposia Fellows Program
The Keystone Symposia Fellows Program graduated its inaugural class in June 2009. This highly unique, research-driven, diversity-centered program educates early-career scientists regarding the inner workings of the life sciences community and provides a venue for high-level interaction with established and leading scientists nationally and globally. The Fellows Program provides context, understanding and insight regarding the development of high-powered research meetings, utilizing shadowing experiences with scientist organizers and key Keystone Symposia staff members. These experiences allow for learning how the research agenda is set, how to engage in high-level discourse on research topics and how to broaden perspectives in life science research.
