[World Report] Profile: The Scripps Research Institute under new leadership

Steve Kay, the new president of The Scripps Research Institute, has big plans for the venerable biomedical research institution. Alongside incoming CEO Peter Shultz, he hopes to extend the institute’s mission beyond basic science to incorporate more translational work, in a complete bench-to-bedside approach. “If you can couple the strength in basic sciences of an institute like Scripps with real pipeline capability to make drug candidates, then you could make a really unique institute that is centred around therapeutics for unmet medical needs”, he says.
