On June 23, 1995, Dr. Jonas Salk, who developed the first polio vaccine, died at the age of 81.

Given the fear and anxiety that Polio had caused during the first half of the 1955th century, the success of the vaccine in XNUMX made Dr. Salk an international hero.

By 1960, however, Salk was ready for other work. His dream was to create an independent research center where a community of scholars interested in various aspects of biology could engage in the study of life.

Today, the institute bears the name Salk and at its entrance there is a plaque with the inscription: "Hope rests on the dreams, imagination and courage of those who dare to make dreams come true."
