Scientists in the Department of Molecular Medicine at The Wertheim UF Scripps Institute delineate the molecular underpinnings of cellular processes and uncover new paths toward therapeutic development.
Drawing from disciplines including chemistry, structural biology, pharmacology and genomics, our scientists are making major contributions in the battle against cancer, metabolic diseases, neurological disorders and more. Therapeutic discovery is supported by an outstanding high-throughput screening facility with an extensive and diverse chemical library.
The Skaggs Graduate School of Chemical and Biological Sciences at Scripps Research trains the next generation of scientists on our campus through its nationally recognized Ph.D. program in biomedical sciences.
The molecular biologists at UF Scripps have been making major discoveries in their fields for nearly two decades. Read about many of them here.
Our faculty have expertise in diverse areas, spanning fields from cancer tumor heterogeneity to skeletal stem cell biology and much more.
