Salk’s “Rockstar”

Outgoing Salk Board Chair Irwin Jacobs was feted like rock royalty at the Trustees’ dinner in November at the La Jolla home of Michele and Ted Waitt, Salk’s new Board chair. In recognition of Jacobs’ decade of service and support of Salk science, the creation of a three-year, $50 million Rockstar Fund for faculty recruitment was announced. Jacobs remains on the Salk Board as chairman emeritus.
