La Jolla, CA – The Salk Institute for Biological Studies has been ranked as one of the nation's leaders in molecular biology and genetics research by a publication that monitors trends and performances in basic research.


Salk Institute and SUGEN Scientists Map 'Human Kinome'

La Jolla, CA – A California research team has mapped an entire group of human enzymes, providing important information for the development of a new generation of drugs to treat cancer and other diseases. The findings will be published in the Dec. 6 issue of Science.


New Book Reveals Complexities Of The Human Mind

La Jolla, CA – Who are we? Are we good or fundamentally evil? What makes us happy? Who can we become? These are the questions prefacing a new book, Liars, Lovers, and Heroes: What the New Brain Science Reveals About How We Become Who We Are.


Salk Institute Professor Sydney Brenner Receives 2002 Nobel Prize for Medicine

La Jolla, CA – Sydney Brenner, a distinguished professor at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, is one of three recipients of this year's Nobel Prize in medicine for his contributions toward discoveries about how genes regulate organ growth and the process of programmed cell death.


HIV Targets Active Genes in Cells

La Jolla, CA – HIV selectively inserts itself into active areas of a host cell's genome, Salk Institute researchers have found for the first time. The fact that the virus hooks itself up to areas of the cell's genome that are busy expressing themselves may help explain why HIV can replicate, or reproduce itself, so rapidly. The findings are being published as the cover article in the Friday, August 23, issue of the journal Cell.


New Insight Into How Eyes Become Wired To The Brain Discovered By Salk, UT Southwestern Scientists

La Jolla, CA – A crucial piece of the puzzle into how the eye becomes wired to the brain has been revealed by scientists at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, Calif., and UT Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas.


Salk Scientists Find Evidence For "Hit and Run" Cancer Mechanism

La Jolla, CA – A team led by Salk Institute scientists may have discovered how viruses can "hit and run" a cell's genetic machinery to trigger cancer and exit without a trace.


Salk Institute Awarded for 'Exemplary Partnership' with Local High School

La Jolla, CA – In recognition of its deep commitment to Morse High School students, the Salk Institute has been awarded the 'Exemplary Partnerships Award' and the 'Ten-Year Partnerships Award' by San Diego City Schools.


Gene Therapy Reverses Male Infertility In Salk-led Study

La Jolla, CA – A team led by Salk Institute scientists has used gene therapy to reverse infertility in male mice. Treated mice produced healthy offspring that did not contain the introduced gene or vector, alleviating concerns that treating infertility via gene therapy would genetically alter any progeny produced from the treatment, as well as their descendants in perpetuity.


Potential Link Found Between Breast Cancer Drug and Cardiac Failure

La Jolla, CA – A team led by Salk scientists has identified the probable link between the breast cancer drug Herceptin and cardiac failure, one of its common side effects. The results may also explain why a common combination drug regimen including Herceptin is particularly toxic.
