Some of these people are probably your loved ones, your neighbor, your best friend or your co-worker. Organ transplants have the possibility to extend the lives of thousands of people each year and it has been Thermo Fisher Scientific’s mission to advance the field of transplantation and improve the quality of life for both patients and their families.

Fisher Science Education is committed to promoting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) education in schools all across the country. As demand for jobs in these fields continues to grow, it is important that students possess the necessary skills to face the challenges of the 21st century with confidence and innovation. As part of our corporate responsibility efforts, we also believe in making the world healthier, cleaner and safer and are always encouraging students to experience science safely. With this goal in mind we teamed up with our parent company Thermo Fisher Scientific to create a program that brings STEM and lab safety into the classroom like never before.
