Innovation Night 2024 - Celebrating 100 years of Scripps Research

About Scripps Research
Scripps Research was founded in 1924 as the Scripps Metabolic Clinic in La Jolla with a gift from local philanthropist Ellen Browning Scripps. Inspired, in part, by the discovery of insulin in 1921 to treat diabetes, she believed that science would transform the field of medicine. The tremendous impact of Scripps Research over the past century has proven her right and today we carry on that tradition, continuing the institute’s rich history and achievements to push the frontiers of science and medicine over the next century and beyond.

The institute sets the standard for excellence in a number of research fields, evidenced by the steady stream of groundbreaking discoveries that emerge from the institute’s labs in chemistry, neuroscience, immunology and structural biology, to name a few. Building upon this foundation of scientific excellence, we’ve established a remarkable track record of generating new medicines. Discoveries made in the institute’s labs have enabled 15 FDA-approved therapies…with many more on the horizon.

Under the leadership of Peter Schultz, President and CEO of Scripps Research, we have begun to build on this remarkable record to establish a new paradigm for the institute and for the field of science more broadly.
