The Scripps Research Institute recently hosted a High Tea in the galleria of the Beckman Center for Chemical Sciences to recognize local donors for their research support. Donors were provided with a behind-the-scenes update on recent discoveries and a peek into the breakthroughs around the corner.

Special recognition was given to the Scripps Legacy Society whose members have supported the science at Scripps Research by making a gift in their estate plans. Legacy Society member Kim Doren spoke briefly about her personal experience with disease and how it inspired her to support biomedical research.

Third-year graduate student Keary Engle also made a presentation. Engle is pursuing a joint Ph.D./D.Phil. at Scripps Research and the University of Oxford as a Skaggs-Oxford Scholar.
