Scripps Research's picture

Scripps Florida – a division of The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI), headquartered in La Jolla, California – is a state-of-the-art biomedical research facility located on 30 acres in Jupiter, Florida (Palm Beach County). An additional 70 acres are available for expansion on the large adjacent “Briger” tract of land in the city of Palm Beach Gardens.

Using the latest cutting-edge technologies, researchers at Scripps Florida focus on basic biomedical research and drug discovery. As of June 2012, 440 full-time faculty members, scientific, technical, and administrative staff work at the 350,000-square-foot campus, which is comprised of three state-of-the-art research buildings. By 2014, the campus is expected to house more than 60 faculty and 550 total staff.

The start-up costs of Scripps Florida were supported by a one-time $310 million appropriation of federal economic development funds by the Florida State Legislature in 2003. Palm Beach County provided an economic package that included funding for land and construction of temporary laboratories, the current permanent campus, and related costs. The institute's administration is extremely grateful to the State of Florida and County of Palm Beach for affording it the opportunity to expand operations here in Florida and help bolster the State’s standing as a scientific and economic leader in bioscience.
