Palm Beach Civic Association partner Scripps Research has been churning out impressive new findings on multiple medical fronts, from cancer and Muscular Dystrophy to ALS and Alzheimer’s, for the past 15 years. Now a new study measuring economic impact of the research facility in Jupiter finds that for every dollar invested, Scripps Research has returned $6 to the community in terms of new companies and jobs.
