La Jolla is known for its rich culture and phenomenal beaches; however, there is also a deeper, scientific side to this ocean-side community. The Salk Institute is one of the leading scientific research facilities in the world, making advances in molecular biology, genetics and the neurosciences. This research is helping make strides in providing viable therapies for diseases such as Alzheimer’s, AIDS and many other serious illnesses.
The Salk Institute was founded by Dr. Jonas Salk, the man who developed the polio vaccine. The institute is more than just a research facility; it has also trained over 2,700 scientists that work all over the world.
