“One of the greatest aspects of Salk is the diversity and richness of scientists. They are pioneers in so many different disciplines. We thrive off of the intersection of the cross-disciplinary work that we do between immunologists, cancer researchers, neurobiologists, chemists, and plant biologists. This is truly an exciting time and Salk is a wonderful place to work.” Susan Kaech
