Research Foundation of Southern California, La Jolla
Our success in contributing to a number of areas of
science has been understandably rewarding and
instructive. As noted, they span the nature and origin of
the genetic code, the forces driving evolution, origin of
life, synthetic biology, macromolecular and dynamical
complexity, quantum theory of gravity, hydrogel drug
implants, and aspects of mammalian fertilization.
Encouraged by this experience, we believe the
Foundation would be an ideal site to nurture creativity
in the sciences. With this goal in mind, it appears
beneficial to us to retain contact with the force that
initially drove science: the challenge and pleasure that
the pursuit of fundamental truths presents to an
enquiring, unfettered mind.
