Program areas at Scripps Research Institute

Groundbreaking scientific research is conducted at TSRI campuses in La Jolla, California, and Jupiter, Florida, supported by grants, contracts and fellowships from public and private institutes and individuals. TSRI's unique structure merges basic scientific studies in biology, chemistry and bioinformatics with translational science to produce the next generation of drugs and advances in digital and precision medicine. Scientific discoveries at TSRI seed joint drug discovery projects at Calibr, a division of TSRI, creating a pipeline of drug candidates that will impact patients for years to come. The Scripps Research Translational Institute, another division of TSRI, aims to individualize healthcare by leveraging the progress being made in human genomics and combining it with the power of wireless digital technologies and artificial intelligence.
TSRI is committed to educating, training and inspiring the scientists of tomorrow. The institute's Skaggs Graduate School of Chemical and Biological Sciences, ranked one of the ten best graduate programs in the country, empowers students to make high-impact discoveries at the interface of chemistry and biology. Students in the Skaggs Graduate School are immersed in intensive laboratory research from day one and pursue ambitious investigations across scientific disciplines. Graduates of the school become educators at top universities and research institutes, thought leaders within government departments and innovators at pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. Postdoctoral associates arrive at TSRI from all over the globe, seeking to expand their knowledge and training by working alongside our world-renowned scientists. The Scripps Fellows program identifies individuals with an outstanding record of graduate research and moves them into their own laboratories, allowing them to leapfrog their postdoctoral years of study and begin pushing the frontiers of scientific discovery.
