es."

In becoming part of the Consortium, La Jolla Institute faculty member Anjana Rao, Ph.D., a prominent genetics and cell biology researcher, will move part of her lab into the new building. Dr. Kronenberg becomes a member of the Consortium's 10-member Board of Directors, which includes UC San Diego Chancellor Marye Anne Fox, Ph.D., and leaders from the other collaborating organizations. The Board is co-chaired by San Diego philanthropists Irwin M. Jacobs, Sc.D., Malin Burnham and John Moores, and South Dakota-based philanthropist T. Denny Sanford, who provided a $30 million naming gift to the Consortium.

While retaining their independent research affiliations, researchers from the five organizations will work side by side to hasten the pace of stem cell research progress, and to discover and develop diagnostics, therapies and cures to relieve human suffering from chronic disease and injury.

Louis R. Coffman, Sanford Consortium vice president & chief operating officer, praised the La Jolla Institute's addition to the collaboration. "Their researchers have a wonderful reputation for science and perfectly align with the Consortium's overriding goal to catalyze great science."

Lawrence Goldstein, Ph.D., director of UC San Diego's Stem Cell Program, who will locate his lab in the Collaboratory, offered similar sentiments. "Obviously, we're delighted to have the involvement of such an outstanding Institute," he said. "This will not only bring the unique expertise of Anjana Rao to the Consortium, but we anticipate that it will boost collaborations between the Consortium organizations and many of the fine immunologists from the La Jolla Institute."

Coffman added that "Anjana is a wonderful addition to the San Diego research community and the other Consortium scientists are enthused about collaborating with her."

Dr. Rao joined the La Jolla Institute in 2010 as head of the Institute's Division of Signaling a
