Research Departments

At The Scripps Research Institute, the pursuit of scientific excellence takes an interdisciplinary approach.  While the faculty are organized into 5 academic departments, these departments have soft boundaries.  Rather than defining circumscribed areas of research and isolating faculty members and laboratories into separate and distinct disciplines, the cooperative, collaborative spirit is encouraged and embraced.
