Inside Salk; Salk Insitute


Step into Discovery

The most important leg of any relay race is the first one. Without it, the team never crosses the finish line.

At Salk, the basic research we do is that first step to discovering new cures.

Without us there is no second step.

Join us on Saturday, April 13, for the inaugural 5K Walk for Salk and Explore Salk, a free community open house with exclusive behind-the-scenes lab tours and an opportunity to interact with world-renowned scientists.

Your support will go directly to the heroes in the labs who are researching cancer, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, healthy aging, diabetes, obesity, plant biology and our education outreach programs.

Entry fee for the Walk for Salk is $35, which includes breakfast, t-shirt, water bottle and bag. Children under 12 are free.

Registration for Explore Salk activities is free.
