As students across the country race from their
classrooms to pools, beaches and summer camps, a select few
will be joining
scientific leaders in the lab at Scripps Research’s California
and Florida campuses.
As members of the lab, these students will experience

|Facts & Figures |
|Our scientists have developed a new
method for economically producing a pharmaceutical
steroid with promise for treating conditions ranging
from macular degeneration to cancer. The molecule was
isolated from a marine sponge.|
|NIH Cuts Funding|
The National Institutes of Health’s
budget was decreased by $581 million in fiscal 2008.
This cut will drastically affect funding of Scripps
Research’s life-saving research.
That's why we are calling on the
support of forward-thinking individuals like you. Please
do your part to keep biomedical research moving forward.
