Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute Research Labs
The Institute’s Cancer Center is one of only seven NCI-designated basic cancer research centers in the nation. We couple fundamental biological research with early translational studies to find new, innovative therapies that restore hope to cancer patients and their families. SBP discoveries begin with our people – scientists, postdoctoral candidates, graduate students and support staff – who work collaboratively toward understanding the cause of disease and identifying new therapeutic approaches to improve human health. As an independent, nonprofit institution, we focus on conducting biomedical research in cancer, neuroscience, Immunology and rare children’s diseases. SBP is home to one of the most comprehensive drug discovery centers in the nonprofit world. Our innovative approach to research underpins our strategic partnerships with the biotech and pharmaceutical industry. We cultivate the next generation of biomedical scientists through our graduate and postdoctoral training programs. SBP employs almost 800 scientists and staff in San Diego (La Jolla), CA. We are widely recognized for our NCI-designated Cancer Center, the Conrad Prebys Center for Chemical Genomics and the Sanford Children’s Health Research Center.
