Solving the world’s hardest problems since 1941

SR is a Birmingham-based nonprofit scientific research organization with a global mission to solve the world's hardest problems and make the world a better place. Our scientists and engineers are dedicated to the discovery of life-saving drugs and vaccines, the creation of safe space exploration, the pursuit of environmentally sustainable everyday products, and the protection of our service members in uniform.

We are not constrained by established ideas, existing technical capabilities or immediate challenges. Instead, we are in relentless pursuit of better, more meaningful, more promising discoveries that push beyond expectations, providing hope to people we serve, and allowing us to continue reaching radical solutions. And we cannot do this without your support in the community.
