Our San Diego research facility is located near the Pacific coastline and in the heart of San Diego's biotech cluster. Described as having "an upbeat energy and positive vibe" in one of the most beautiful areas of the country, our site has been recognized by the San Diego Business Journal as a "Best Place to Work."

Our San Diego employees work hard together and play hard together. We plan a variety of fun activities throughout the year – from family picnics and bowling nights to trips to Padres and Chargers games. Interaction with the San Diego community and patient groups is also important to us, and we participate in events to promote science education and awareness of diseases related to our research, such as cystic fibrosis, Huntington's disease, and liver disease.
