Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute in La Jolla hosted its annual gala, “On the Track to Discovery,” on Nov. 2, 2013 at the Del Mar Country Club. The event’s honorary co-chairs were Roberta Burnham, Pauline Foster and Madeleine Pickens. The gala featured the merriment and inspirational spirit of the Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing and celebrated the lives of two Institute luminaries, Board leader Duane Roth and co-founder Lillian Fishman. The lead sponsor was Life Technologies, Inc., and with support from gala patrons, $2.1 million was raised for biomedical research.
