Dear colleagues and friends,
In this edition of
Discoveries we highlight biomedical research and science-themed events that inspire collaboration and knowledge sharing—locally and across the globe.
SBP’s collaborative spirit can be seen in our partnership with scientists in Rome to investigate neuromuscular disease—yielding a discovery that offers hope to nearly 15,000 Americans living with ALS. Other SBP scientists have joined the race to develop new antibiotics to fight drug-resistant infections in the U.S. and abroad.
Closer to home, people from diverse backgrounds visited our La Jolla campus to experience biomedical research firsthand. We opened our Cancer Center to SBP supporters interested in learning more about our cancer research and we hosted high school student interns, with the goal of inspiring future generations of scientists.
I hope you enjoy this issue.
