Research Centers
  • Center for the Neurobiology of Vision
    The Salk Institute is home to one of the world's premier research communities in neuroscience, and the Center for Neurobiology of Vision focuses on using the visual system as a model for studies of brain structure and function.
  • Center for Nutritional Genomics
    The Salk Center for Nutritional Genomics employs a molecular approach to nutrition and its impact on the role of metabolism in diabetes, obesity, cancer, exercise physiology and lifespan, thereby increasing the understanding of how nutrients affect health.
  • Center of Excellence in Stem Cell Genomics
    The Center of Excellence in Stem Cell Genomics, led by researchers at the Salk Institute and Stanford University, was created through a $40 million award by California's stem cell agency, the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine.
  • Crick-Jacobs Center
    The overall goal of the Crick-Jacobs Center is to integrate experimental and theoretical approaches to understanding the organization of signaling systems and the functional neuroanatomy of the brain and how behavior arises from the interactions between the brain's many components.
  • Glenn Center for Research on Aging
    The Glenn Center draws from 11 of Salk's leading laboratories to address the overarching goal of defining a healthy lifespan and understanding the biological processes of aging.
  • Helmsley Center for Genomic Medicine
    The Helmsley Center for Genomic Medicine investigates inflammation as the underlying cause of many chronic diseases such as diabetes, obesity, cancer and neurodegeneration, using a wide array of genomic approaches.
  • NCI Cancer Center
    A National Cancer Center Institute-designated basic research center, Salk's Cancer Center probes the fundamental aspects of cancer biology, with the ultimate goal of reducing incidence, morbidity and mortality.
  • Nomis Center for Immunobiology and Microbial Pathogenesis
    The Nomis Center for Immunobiology and Microbial Pathogenesis aims to shed light on the molecular mechanisms that cause infectious diseases, understand the body's response to injury or infection, and explore why inflammatory processes spin out of control under some circumstances.
  • Sloan-Swartz Center for Theoretical Neurobiology
    The principal objective of the Sloan-Swartz Center for Theoretical Neurobiology is to develop a firm theoretical infrastructure for modern experimental neurobiology, by applying concepts and techniques from the physical sciences to a wide range of problems in neurobiology.
  • Waitt Advanced Biophotonics Center
    The Waitt Advanced Biophotonics Center is a state-of-the-art research hub that enabling investigators from across many disciplines to gain unprecedented insight into the inner workings of cells and tissues by observing how single molecules and cells function in real time.
