We can’t wait for our newest neighbor to open its doors! The Sanford Consortium for Regenerative Medicine is scheduled to complete construction on its research building in June. Check out this live video feed of the building taking shape right around the corner from Sanford-Burnham’s La Jolla campus.
The Sanford Consortium, a collaboration between Sanford-Burnham, the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, The Scripps Research Institute and UC San Diego, was created to combine the talent and technology of these four great research institutions to advance our understanding of stem cell biology and ultimately find new treatments for Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, diabetes, paralysis and many other conditions. The building is being funded largely through a $30 million gift from T. Denny Sanford and a $43 million grant from the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM).
