California Campus

While our faculty focus on the fields of chemistry, neuroscience, immunology and infectious disease, structural biology and molecular medicine, their investigations are not limited by departmental borders and, in fact, cross-disciplinary collaborations regularly lead to vital discoveries. Potential new medicines are advanced into pre-clinical trials via the drug development infrastructure available at the Calibr-Skaggs Institute for Innovative Medicines, a unit within the institute. And the genomic data analysis and digital health monitoring provided by the Scripps Research Translational Institute, another unit, inform and help further refine therapeutics.

Scripps Research scientists are prolific and entrepreneurial: Nearly 1,000 U.S. patents and over 80 spinoff companies have resulted from their discoveries. Significantly, nine approved drugs are based on their groundbreaking research, with more on the way. Seminal work such as this led the scientific journal Nature to name Scripps Research the world’s most influential research institute.
