Trustee Richard Heyman addresses Salk alumni

Biotech entrepreneur and recently elected Salk trustee Richard Heyman, PhD, spoke at the Institute’s annual alumni mixer in June. He was well suited for the role: Heyman is also a Salk alumnus, having once worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the lab of Ronald Evans, professor and director of the Gene Expression Laboratory.

Salk’s Alumni Program helps connect some 3,500 researchers who trained at the Institute before going on to important positions at facilities all over the world.

Five years ago, Salk established the Alumni- Faculty Fellowship Fund raising enough funds every year to grant a fellowship to a postdoctoral researcher. Both alumni and current Salk faculty contribute to the fund.
