"We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give." Winston Churchill


Through the exceptional generosity of Joseph and Violet Jacobs, the Jacobs Institute was founded on the campus of the California Institute of Technology in 2007. Their goal was to draw upon the creative abilities of gifted scientists in developing basic research in molecular engineering which could lead expeditiously to medical applications. Such progress is rarely predictable or rapid, and the number and scope of such projects is limited by the scarcity of funds, especially in difficult financial times. We welcome those of vision who are able and willing to join the Jacobs family in their effort to bring the cutting-edge of molecular engineering to modern medicine.
