Who we are and what we do:
We are a nonprofit, all volunteer organization designed to encourage both professional and social exchange within The Scripps Research Institute, and with postdocs from other academic institutions in the San Diego area.
We support a series of academic events, including a visiting lectureship program and an annual Research Symposium.
We help to develop postdocs’ careers by offering bursaries for courses and travel to conferences, and run career-oriented events in association with the TSRI Careers Office. Our Industry Bridge Program provides an opportunity for postdocs and grad students to visit and network with San Diego’s many biotech and pharma companies.
We organize social events, including monthly happy hours, cross-institute parties and group activities.
We also establish and maintain a program of communication and information exchange regarding the Institution for all present and former Fellows.
