Work at SDBRI

Working together to give every patient a fighting chance

SDBRI is a non-profit biomedical research institute focused on finding new ways to predict and prevent disease to accelerate medical advances that maintain health and improve quality of life. The structure and environment at SDBRI are designed to foster collaboration across disciplines and specialties and to encourage innovation. While individual research groups work on the disease areas in which they are experts, they also work together to identify possible overlap in biological processes that lead to more than one disease, and from one disease to another. In addition, joint programs between the HIV vaccine discovery program and scientists working in immunology, metabolism and inflammation are designed to maximize the impact of new generation vaccines.

Brainstorming sessions between investigators in the different disease areas are held regularly to identify important questions, write joint funding proposals, and coordinate the relevant scientific research. This arrangement maximizes the potential impact of their research for the benefit of the patient population.

Located in the heart of San Diego’s Science Park, SDBRI is a part of one of the largest and most concentrated centers of science, engineering, and medicine in the U.S. – a setting that fosters cooperative partnerships, intellectual exchange, and shared resources.
