JUPITER, Fla. – Oct. 25, 2017 – Scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have created a new class of antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs), using a versatile “double decker” technology that ties antibodies and a drug together to produce highly potent pharmaceuticals for cancer therapy.
Reports released today from CareerSource Palm Beach County and the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity show Palm Beach County’s unemployment rate for September 2017 dropped to the lowest level in a decade.

JUPITER, FL – October 17, 2017 – In findings that open the door to a completely different approach to curing HIV infections, scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have for the first time shown that a novel compound effectively suppresses production of the virus in chronically infected cells, and prevents viral rebound, even when those infected cells are subjected to vigorous stimulation.
JUPITER, FL – October 16, 2017 – Scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) and Albert Einstein College of Medicine will share in a $9 million grant from the National Institute on Aging, part of the National Institutes of Health, to study how individual genetic differences may form the basis for new therapeutic approaches that target the aging process itself rather than focusing on the treatment of individual diseases.
Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), a national network of five hospitals headquartered in Boca Raton, Fla., ranked third in the US Hospitals category of YouGov’s 2017 Brand Health rankings.

JUPITER, FL – October 13, 2017 – Using advanced mass spectrometry technology, scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have developed a molecular model that may provide a new framework for improving the design of osteoporosis treatments.
JUPITER, FL – October 12, 2017 – A new study from scientists on the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) offers important insights into possible links between sleep and hunger—and the benefits of studying the two in tandem. A related paper from the same lab is providing researchers an accessible tool for pursuing further investigations involving multiple fruit fly behaviors.
