Sciex (Framingham, Massachusetts, USA) has donated $17,500 to the World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) to help fund urgently‑needed research investigating the relationships between food, nutrition, and physical activity with cancer prognosis and outcome in cancer survivors.

A donation of $11,000 was made as the result of 98% participation in the annual Sciex employee engagement survey, where Sciex committed to donating to this cause based on the number of survey responses collected. An additional $6500 was donated by the Danaher Foundation, the parent company of Sciex.

“Sciex is very proud to support organizations that promote healthcare research and discovery, community engagement, and efforts towards innovative approaches to improve quality of life around the world,” said Inese Lowenstein, President of Sciex

Gerard Cousins, Director of Fundraising for WCRF UK, commented: “WCRF is proud to have been working with Sciex, an organization that shares our aim of empowering people to make healthier lifestyle choices, since 2015. Sciex fundraising has helped to fund much-needed research into cancer prevention, which has been reflected in our latest report, Diet, Nutrition, Physical Activity and Cancer: a Global Perspective, which was launched in May.”
