Salk Institute Celebrates Grand Opening of the Waitt Advanced Biophotonics Center
Date:2/11/2011

LA JOLLA, Calif., Feb. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Waitt Advanced Biophotonics Center at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies officially opened on February 9, 2011 after quietly hiring two faculty members specializing in biophotonics -- the science of using and manipulating light to investigate biological function -- and building up its core facility's imaging capacity to rival most if not all academic research institutions of its size in the nation.

Launched with a landmark $20 million gift from the Waitt Foundation, the Waitt Advanced Biophotonics Center serves as a state-of-the-art research hub, driving the development of next-generation imaging and visualization tools and enabling investigators from across many biological disciplines to take advantage of the latest imaging technology.

"By putting these incredible tools in the hands of Salk investigators in an interdisciplinary teamwork environment, breakthroughs are bound to happen," said Ted Waitt, vice-chair of the Salk Institute board of trustees and chairman of the Waitt Foundation

"Imaging, and the visualization of images, are pervasive elements in our data-rich day-to-day lives, but even more so in biomedical research," said Salk president William R. Brody, M.D., Ph.D. "Having access to the latest imaging technology will have tremendous impact on our ability to visualize the inner dynamics of single cells, to understand the physiology of human disease and find new ways to treat it."

The faculty research labs housed within the Waitt Advanced Biophotonics Center are engaged in both imaging technology development and answering fundamental problems in the life sciences.

"Biophotonics is one of those transforming technologies that will impact nearly all the science being done at the Salk Institute," said Inder Verma, Ph.D., an American Cancer Society professor in the Laboratory of Genetics and holder of the Irwin and Joan Jacobs Chair in Exemplary Life
