Our scientists conduct research towards understanding the causes of, and searching for treatments and cures for, many diseases which affect humans. We share the results of our research with other scientists and the public throughout the world, by presenting results at scientific conferences, publishing scientific papers, maintaining a website with many useful links, and providing printed information on various diseases.


With an overhead of less than 3%, nearly all of our funds go towards research. The major fields include MS, diabetes, melanoma, heart disease, breast and prostate cancer, and infectious diseases.

Agree with the previous review; upper management provides a textbook example of why non-profits get bad reputations for fleecing taxpayers. The VP & CEO are married--a huge red flag. I personally found them to be two of the most innately dishonest people I've ever met, particularly the VP. Very poor leadership, communications, and management skills; they give me every impression of people who are in way, way over their heads.

I used to work there. Poorly organized. The President up and left and moved headquarters to Florida without telling employees or even the upper-level staff. I left in 2009 because it was clear the focus was on Florida and not San Diego anymore. Sad, because it started off as a good place that was really focused on research.
