The Salk Institute
McCarthy spearheaded this 116,000-sf, two-story East Building laboratory construction addition, housing a research lab and administrative space as well as a 300-seat underground auditorium and meeting rooms.
The Salk Institute for Biological Studies embodies Jonas Salk’s mission to dare to make dreams into reality. They explore the very foundations of life, seeking new realities in neuroscience, genetics, immunology and more. Be it cancer or Alzheimer’s, aging or diabetes, they understand that every cure has a starting point. The Salk Institute works on finding those cures.
