Donation to Salk Institute for Biological Studies
We created the La Jolla Supporter Membership with the goal of benefiting the local community. This is why 20% of every contribution from the Supporter membership goes to the Salk Institute for Biological Studies.
The Salk Institute is a scientific research institute located in La Jolla, CA. It is a non-profit, founded in 1960 by Jonas Salk, the developer of the polio vaccine. The Salk institute provides research with the goal of new understanding and potential treatments for a range of diseases, from AIDS and Alzheimer’s to cancer and cardiovascular disorders.
The Salk institute employs 850 researchers in 60 research groups with focuses on molecular biology and genetics, neurosciences, and plant biology. They focus on gaining new knowledge to treat cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, AIDS, Parkinson’s, among others.
We at LaJolla.com believe in the Salk Institute mission and are happy to support them. Every Supporter contribution includes a donation to the Salk Institute for Biological Studies.
Supporting The Site and Local Journalism
