Disease Areas and Medicines

Scripps Research scientists decipher the underlying biological causes of disease and use this hard-won knowledge to advance medicine and healthcare. We develop preventative and therapeutic drugs, lead the way to the clinical implementation of wireless technologies in medicine, and use advances in genomic sequencing, mobile technologies and increasingly sophisticated bioinformatics to help usher in a new era of precision medicine.

Scripps Research ranks as the most influential scientific organization in the world, unparalleled in propelling innovation in science and medicine. Our unique structure merges foundational studies in biology, chemistry and computer science with translational science to produce the next generation of drugs and advances in digital and precision medicine. Scientists in the institute’s five academic research departments work hand-in-hand with scientists of the Scripps Research Translational Institute and Calibr. Together, we cultivate the next generation of scientific leaders and expand the frontiers of knowledge to drive innovation that improves lives around the planet.
