Science is a collaborative pursuit, and we invite you to join us in accelerating life-changing discoveries.
For more than 60 years, the Salk Institute has pursued Jonas Salk’s vision of fearless, interdisciplinary science aimed at answering big questions about ourselves and the world around us. Salk scientists have helped create a new class of anti-cancer drugs, illuminated how memories form, expanded our understanding of how plants convert sunlight into chemical energy, and made many other life-changing discoveries.
But this work is far from done. The world is facing enormous challenges, including cancer, infectious diseases, neurodegenerative conditions, and a global climate crisis. We must act now to support the next generation of science, and empower the people who will bring it to life.
