Thermo Fisher Scientific has entered into a partnership with West China Hospital of Sichuan University, one of the largest single-site hospitals in the world, to develop a joint platform for researching precision medicine.

The two parties have agreed to collaborate closely to make West China Hospital a leading global molecular diagnosis center. Their joint efforts will include construction of training bases for standardized pathology quality control and standardized pathologic diagnosticians, and development of advanced laboratories with efficient, safe and integrated business procedures.

"Our company mission – to enable our customers to make the world healthier, cleaner and safer – is perfectly aligned with the priorities in China's five-year plan," said Marc Casper, president and chief executive officer of Thermo Fisher. "We share a commitment to advancing precision medicine, and we're excited about strengthening our collaboration with West China Hospital to provide technologies and expertise that will ultimately improve patient care."

“We are exploring opportunities to collaborate with renowned, industry-leading international companies to harness and capitalize on our strength in pathology,” said Li Weimin, president of West China Hospital. “With our partners at Thermo Fisher, we are working to enhance the quality of pathological research and clinical diagnosis. We are also exploring an opportunity to extend our partnership in Western China by accelerating the development of precise pathological diagnoses that will ultimately help improve people’s lives.”
