Our Mission

San Diego Biomedical Research Institute is dedicated to predict, prevent and alleviate chronic diseases by accelerating medical advances through basic research, science education and community partnerships.

  • Conduct studies to prevent onset and progression of HIV/AIDS, diabetes, metastatic cancer and cachexia (skeletal muscle wasting) to improve and extend quality of life.
  • Create an environment where scientists freely engage in collaborative research to identify and target common pathways that lead to advanced disease.
  • Engage the public with the Institute’s activities to excite scientific inquiry and identify health problems relevant to the community.
  • Foster public and private relationships to diversify support for chronic disease research.
