Scripps Research has also been an influential force in shaping the bioscience community atop the Torrey Pines Mesa, which is now a thriving and collaborative ecosystem of academic institutions, biopharmaceutical companies and nonprofit organizations.

As Scripps Research enters a new century, the institute plans to expand its global impact on science and human health. Researchers will continue pursuing bold, transformative ideas, while translating these foundational discoveries into life-saving medicines. These are aimed at treating a spectrum of severe conditions, including cancer, neurological disorders, infectious diseases and much more.
