FLICKR, HÅKAN DAHLSTRÖMChemist Peter Schultz is bringing together his two nonprofit institutions—the Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) and the California Institute for Biomedical Research (Calibr)—merging them into a new biomedical research entity, according to a statement issued last week (October 20). The hope is that basic research conducted at TSRI can be fed into Calibr for preclinical and clinical development.

“The affiliation between TSRI and Calibr is the first of its kind,” Schultz, who is president of both organizations, said in the press release. “Unlike other research institutes and universities that have sought to establish translational capabilities within academic centers, we aren’t building from scratch—rather, we are integrating the strengths of two proven nonprofit organizations.”

The two institutions have collaborated since Calibr was launched in 2012, but the merge will allow them to share a board of directors as well as scientific and administrative resources, reducing overhead costs for both organizations.
