Alfred P. Sloan Foundation

The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation believes that a carefully reasoned and systematic understanding of the forces of nature and society, when applied inventively and wisely, can lead to a better world for all.  The Foundation is unique in its focus on science, technology, and economic institutions. It believes the scholars and practitioners who work in these fields are chief drivers of the nation’s health and prosperity. In each grant program, the Foundation seeks proposals for original projects led by outstanding individuals or teams.

In 1996 the Foundation funded one of Kikim’s first projects—Naked to the Bone, a documentary about the history of medical imaging technology that was based on a book the Foundation also backed—and has been a steadfast supporter of our work ever since.
