Research institute celebrates 10 years

The Human BioMolecular Research Institute recently celebrated more than a decade of brain disease research and science education programs during a 10-year anniversary gala at the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club. Guests sipped champagne and nibbled on hors d’oeuvres while bidding on silent auction items before moving into the main room at the Garden Club for dinner.

The event was emceed by Kerstin Lindquist from Channel 10 News. During dinner, a former student intern at HBRI spoke about her experiences working in the lab at the institute and her career prospects as she heads to Harvard University in the fall. Carmel Valley resident Dr. John Cashman, director of the institute, also spoke about the last decade of research at HBRI.

The Human BioMolecular Research Institute is a nonprofit organization that conducts research focused on unlocking biological and chemical principles related to diseases of the human brain, cardiovascular disease and cancer. The institute does studies of central nervous system disorders and translates findings into new drug development to address human illness. In addition, the institute promotes scientific learning through community service. For more information, visit www.HBRI.org.
