Richard Lerner memorial

Scripps Research hosted a memorial symposium in May for Richard Lerner, MD, a visionary biochemist and former institute president who died last December at 83. Scientists from around the institute and the world paid tribute to Lerner, as well as shared their research built on his foundational work. In 2023, to further honor Lerner’s legacy, the annual Frontiers in Chemistry Symposium will be known as the Richard Lerner Frontiers in Chemistry Symposium.
