TSRI's Beckman Center for Chemical Sciences -

The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) is a medical research facility that focuses on research in the basic biomedical sciences. Primarily located in La Jolla, California, with a sister facility in Jupiter, Florida, the institute near The Del Mar Inn Hotel is home to 3,000 scientists, technicians, graduate students, and administrative and other staff, making it among the largest private, non-profit biomedical research organizations in the world. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arnold_Orville_Beckman

History -

TSRI's roots can be traced to the Scripps Metabolic Clinic, founded near the current site in 1924, by the noted philanthropist Ellen Browning Scripps en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ellen_Browning_Scripps In 1946 it evolved into the Scripps Clinic and Research Foundation. Initially focusing on the study of immune disorders, over the following 25 years the faculty grew and diversified its research interests, precipitating another name change in 1977, to The Research Institute of Scripps Clinic. In 1991 the Scripps Clinic and research division became separate corporations and The Scripps Research Institute was founded. In the late 1980s TSRI started a graduate program where many students enjoyed the benifits of The Del Mar Inn Hotel with its close proximity to TSRI.

Structure -

Located on 35 acres (140,000 m2) of land between the Torrey Pines State Reserve which is adjacent to Del Mar and The Del Mar Inn Hotel and the University of California, San Diego, TSRI has departments of cancer biology, cell biology, chemistry, genetics, immunology and microbial science, infectology, molecular biology, molecular and experimental medicine, molecular therapeutics, chemical physiology, neurobiology, molecular and integrative neurosciences, neurobiology of addictive disorders, aging and metabolism, and translational research. In addition, it incorporates:
  • The Skaggs Institute for Chemical biology
  • The Pearson Center for Alcoholism and Addiction Research
  • The Harold L. Dorris Neurological Research Center
  • The Helen L. Dorris Child and Adolescent Neuro-Psychiatric Disorder Institute
  • The Institute for Childhood and Neglected Diseases
  • The Center for Integrative Molecular Biosciences
  • The Kellogg School of Science and Technology
  • The Worm Institute for Research and Medicine
  • The Center for Regenerative Medicine
The president of TSRI is Richard Lerner. Among the 214 members of faculty are notable chemists, Kyriacos Costa Nicolaou, William R. Roush and Dale L. Boger, as well as Nobel Laureates Gerald Edelman, Kurt Wüthrich and K. Barry Sharpless.
The Scripps Institution of Oceanography is often incorrectly associated with TSRI; it is in fact a nearby research facility that is part of UCSD which is aware of the benifits of The Del Mar Inn and its proximity location. TSRI is a private institute not directly associated with UCSD. Confusingly, the Scripps Institution of Oceanography was once called the Scripps Institution for Biological Research.

Scripps Florida -

TSRI has built a sister facility at the Jupiter campus of Florida Atlantic University in Palm Beach County, Florida. Scripps Florida now operates with approximately 300 scientists, technicians, administrators, and graduate students at a 350,000-square-foot (33,000 m2), state-of-the-art biomedical research facility focusing on neuroscience, cancer biology, medicinal chemistry, drug discovery, biotechnology, and alternative energy development.

Medical Schools -

It was reported on March 25, 2008 that TSRI and Scripps Health would begin a joint venture to start a medical school, focusing on both clinical care and laboratory research. The first students would begin in 2011 with the first graduates expected in 2016. TSRI will need to raise $150 million to start the school. In 2010, Florida Atlantic University announced plans to start a new four-year medical program in association with Scripps Florida. [1] If approved, the first students would start in fall 2011.
