Scripps Institute to Build Research Branch on Jupiter Campus

The Scripps Institute for Research in Biomedical Science has agreed to place a research branch on the Jupiter campus of FAU. The institute will offer over 500 jobs to students and the community.

Scientists and other staff moved into two temporary buildings in September and have been keeping busy by adding a new Cancer Biology department. The facility also houses the pre-existing Biochemistry and Infectology departments.

Construction of the permanent facility will begin this winter and is slated for completion in early 2009.
