Los Angeles, California -- (CCN Matthews - July 25, 2006) - The W.M. Keck Foundation, a leading supporter of high-impact medical research, science and engineering, announced the 2006 class of grant recipients under its Distinguished Young Scholars in Medical Research program today.

Robert A. Day, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said: "Now in its eighth year, our Young Scholars program helps to promote the early career development of some of the country's brightest young biomedical scientists.

The W.M. Keck Foundation Board renewed the program for an additional five years in 2003, bringing the total amount to be awarded up to $50 million by 2008. Under the program, each grant recipient's sponsoring institution receives an award of as much as $1 million to support the scientist's research activities for a period of five years.
