    amount: $144,540
    city: Tucson, AZ
    year: 2010

    To fund, for an additional three years, the recruitment and retention portion of the Sloan Indigenous Graduate Partnership at the University of Arizona

    • Program Higher Education
    • Sub-program Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in STEM Higher Education
    • Investigator Maria Velez

    The University of Arizona was the first campus to participate in the Sloan Indigenous Graduate Partnership and it remains the flagship of the program. Funds from this grant will support the University's efforts to recruit qualified indigenous students to its program, and to provide the resources and institutional support necessary to meet the needs of students from indigenous or tribal backgrounds. Providing such support is a crucial component of enabling indigenous students to successfully complete graduate work, and the University of Arizona anticipates that through its efforts, degree completion among supported students will exceed 90%, an estimate consistent with its record thus far

    To examine the effects of globalization on U.S. domestic regulatory policies, compliance, and economics in biopharmaceutical product manufacturing

    • Program Research
    • Sub-program Economic Institutions, Behavior, & Performance
    • Investigator Anthony Sinskey

    The use of biopharmaceutical products has increased greatly over the past twenty years and is expected to continue to increase in volume and importance in years to come. Like many other manufacturing operations, there has been a substantial increase in the globalization of biopharmaceutical production within the last five to ten years. The FDA, the Government Accountability Office, and Congress are well aware of the challenges and tradeoffs involved when industries globalize, and in response the FDA has adjusted its inspection policies and practices. Funds from this grant will support a multidisciplinary team of researchers based at MIT's Center for Biomedical Innovation and led by Georgetown University Professor Jeffrey Macher, in their work to study how globalization has changed regulatory practice surrounding the production and distribution of biopharmaceuticals.

    • Investigator William Carden

    The Ensemble Studio Theatre (EST), recently voted the leading developmental theater company in New York and the number-two-ranked developmental theater in the United States, is the flagship of Sloan's theater program. This grant will provide three more years of support for the theatre's ongoing program to commission, develop, produce, and disseminate new science plays in New York and across the country. EST continues to be a powerful engine for new science plays. In addition to three outstanding Mainstage Productions at their storied 52nd Street home-Lucy, End Days and Lenin's Embalmers-EST has presented or sponsored 16 play readings and 12 play workshops, as well as a studio production at EST and a satellite production at P.S. 122. The Ensemble Studio Theatre continues to generate an enormous volume of quality science plays that have broadened the public's understanding of science and technology and helped narrow the gap between the two cultures in innovative ways.
