"Sam Skaggs' vision was to hire the very best people and let them do what they do best." For the first time ever, the Skaggs Institute provided an environment where chemists and biologists can work together.
Located on the Scripps Research Institute campus, Skaggs has made a name for themselves by funding innovative ideas that lead to important discoveries. Their mission is to apply basic research to practical medicine in order to relieve human suffering. "Without the basic research, there are no drugs," states Dr. Jeff Kelly.
