“We are deeply grateful to the Prebys Foundation for these generous grants,” says Salk President Gerald Joyce. “Dannie and Tanya are both highly deserving recipients for the critical research each is pursuing. The Salk community congratulates these brilliant scientists, and we look forward to seeing the advances their teams make with this investment.”
