Thermo Fisher Scientific and the University of Pittsburgh have established a long term, multi-faceted, strategic partnership spanning purchasing, student hiring, and R&D. The company partners with Pitt in broad areas, spanning precision medicine, clinical development, structural biology, and oncology research. The company also participates in Pitt career fairs, often hiring University graduates to work at Thermo Fisher. In 2018 we jointly announced the establishment of a new Pharmacogenomics (PGx) Center of Excellence that combines expertise and technology in genomics, bioinformatics, implementation science, medication response phenotyping and education to understand patient medication response and provide enhanced patient care. Thermo Fisher is an important member of the Southwestern PA community and provides unique strengths to our region.
