The Scripps Research Institute Jupiter, Florida

Today, Scripps was proud to announce and grateful to accept a $2million donation from the O’Keeffe Charitable Foundation. This generous donation will be funding a number of specialty research including programs for graduate students, programs for scientists and large research projects. 

The Jupiter Campus 

The Scripps Research Institute of Florida is located in Jupiter, Florida. Scripps is an incredible center for cutting-edge research for the biomedical, drug and technology development fields. The Scripps headquarters are located in La Jolla, California. It is revered for its state-of-the-art biomedical research facilities and incredible, ingenious researchers. The 350,000 square foot campus spreads out among 30 acres in Jupiter and boasts another 70 acres, for future development, in Palm Beach Gardens. As of January of last year, there were 400 faculty members, technical, scientific and administrative staff. It is expected to grow to house 60 faculty and 550 staff by 2014. 

The Research & Departments

The research at Scripps is devoted to basic biomedical exploration, “a vital segment of medical research that seeks to decipher the most fundamental processes of life.” Much of the studies are targeted toward destructive human diseases. Divided into six academic departments, Scripps Florida is broken down into: Cancer Biology, Metabolism and Aging, Molecular Therapeutics, Chemistry, Infectology and Neuroscience. One of the newer additions to the divisions of Scripps is its Translational Research Institute. This department focuses on the critical process of “translating” the advances in scientific findings into applied, practical applications. The Scripps Research Institute is a leader in innovation and has had numerous breakthroughs with scientific research. The support of organizations like this will help provide us with a more educated and prepared future! 

The Donation

The $2 million donation was an incredible gift and will help propell the research greatly. "I know I speak for the entire Scripps community when I wholeheartedly thank the Esther B. O'Keeffe Charitable Foundation," stated the Scripps Research President and CEO, Michael Marletta. "Gifts of this magnitude are transformative and will go directly towards the next generation of discoveries to understand, cure and treat human disease." In honor of the big-hearted donation, the boardroom and Founders Room at Scripps was named the Esther B. O’Keeffe Founders Suite. The late Esther and Arthur O’Keeffe established the Esther B. O’Keeffe Charitable Foundation in 1990. Now the trustees of the foundation are Esther and Arthur’s children who call the progress and efforts of Scripps Florida “tremendously exciting.”
