Thermo Fisher Scientific has opened a US Precision Medicine Science Center (PMSC) in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The center offers access to technologies to help collaborators develop analytical workflows that generate precise molecular profiles of patients to be used in clinical settings.

The PMSC team helps to develop standard protocols that enable collaborators to compress research and development timelines and progress faster from biomarker discovery to assay development. The team includes Thermo Fisher specialists in biochemistry, mass spectrometry, molecular biology, and data science. The PMSC offers access to technologies, including genomic, proteomic, and metabolomic analysis.

In 2017, Thermo Fisher opened a Precision Medicine Science Center in Guangzhou, China. Like the US PMSC, the Guangzhou Center serves as a hub for partners seeking to establish standardized precision medicine platforms as well as for joint research and development.
