SCIEX has donated US$11,000 to the World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF), a UK-based charity that funds and supports vital scientific research into cancer prevention related to diet, weight and physical activity. This money was raised through SCIEX’s strong employee participation in the company’s annual engagement survey, where SCIEX committed to making a donation to this very important cause based on the number of survey responses collected.

The WCRF cause is aligned with SCIEX’s vision of placing the power of life-changing answers into the hands of those who care, everywhere. The WCRF initiative is SCIEX’s latest contribution towards accelerating cancer research through providing the critical tools, expertise and partnerships that are urgently needed for developing more effective cancer therapies.

SCIEX’s generous donation will help the WCRF to fund expert scientific research to deepen our understanding of cancer risk and consequently how to reduce the incidence of the disease. “We’re incredibly grateful to SCIEX for their generous support in raising an impressive $11,000,” said Paul Fretwell, head of fundraising at WCRF. “It’s thanks to the amazing efforts of companies like SCIEX and their dedicated staff that we can continue to fund ground-breaking research into cancer prevention and survival, and help the public make more informed lifestyle choices to reduce their risk of cancer,”.

“It is through SCIEX’s strong customer collaborations and partnerships that we can advance cancer research and ultimately aid in the promise of precision medicine,” said Jean-Paul Mangeolle, president of SCIEX. “We live this vision inside our workplace as well, by aligning our employee engagement programs, such as the SCIEX Run for Life, which also benefited WCRF, to support charities that work within Healthcare Research and Discovery. SCIEX is addressing some of the biggest issues in medicine to help improve peoples’ lives.”
