The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI), one of the world's largest, private, non-profit research organizations, stands at the forefront of basic biomedical science, a vital segment of medical research that seeks to comprehend the most fundamental processes of life. Over the last decades, the institute has established a lengthy track record of major contributions to the betterment of health and the human condition. The institute — which is located on campuses in La Jolla, California, and Jupiter, Florida — has become internationally recognized for its research into immunology, molecular and cellular biology, chemistry, neurosciences, autoimmune diseases, cardiovascular diseases, virology, and synthetic vaccine development. Particularly significant is the institute's study of the basic structure and design of biological molecules; in this arena TSRI is among a handful of the world's leading centers. The institute’s educational programs are also top-rate. The Kellogg School of Science and Technology is currently ranked among the best in the nation in its fields of biology and chemistry. Rather than isolating faculty members, students, and laboratories into separate and distinct disciplines, as is generally prescribed in universities, a cooperative, collaborative spirit is encouraged and embraced. While the level of scientific investigation is intense, the atmosphere is collegial, relaxed, and informal. Technicians, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and administrative support staff all are considered part of the team and are given the latitude and responsibility to accomplish their tasks so as to serve the best interests of science. The pursuit of scientific excellence is paramount and all efforts are directed toward that end. The bulk of the institute's funding is derived from the National Institutes of Health and other federal agencies. In today's environment of increasing competition for shrinking federal dollars, however, collaborative industrial partnerships with leading pharmaceutical companies provide additional funding in several areas key to the organization's research objectives. The Scripps Research Institute's adherence to the highest scientific standards, emphasis on a multidisciplinary approach to problem solving, participation in the perpetuation of knowledge through education, and continual pursuit of research excellence provide an unparalleled scientific environment.
