The Salk Institute embodies Jonas Salk’s mission to dare to make dreams into reality. They explore the very foundations of life, seeking new realities in neuroscience, genetics, immunology and more. They are small by choice, intimate by nature, fearless in the face of any challenge. They live to discover. Be it cancer or Alzheimer’s, aging or diabetes, they understand that every cure has a starting point. Salk is where cures begin.
