50 Years of Putting Science First

Description: immunologist Frank Dixon (front center) arrives at Scripps Research with colleagues from the University of Pittsburgh in 1961.

In 1961, a renowned immunologist named Frank Dixon and four of his colleagues left the University of Pittsburgh to transform the little-known Scripps Clinic and Research Foundation into a major center of biomedical research.

Their goal: to create a place where researchers were freed from excessive bureaucracy... A place where science came first.

This year, The Scripps Research Institute celebrated the 50th anniversary of that lucky gamble.

Now, the Institute has had a number of Nobel Laureates on staff and five decades of pioneering discoveries to our name. Our deepest thanks to all of you – who stand with the Institute as we continue to break new ground.
