MY WORK IS A 
STORY OF HEALTH

 

PROVIDING LIFESAVING SUPPORT TO TRANSPLANT RECIPIENTS

Louise,
Business Transformation Lead


I manage the IT team that supports our Transplant Diagnostics group. Since our products are used to determine compatibility for bone marrow and solid organ transplants, the work I do is part of a lifesaving effort. A transplant center uses our typing kits to determine whether to proceed with a transplant procedure. Physicians and clinicians rely on the accurate, timely information our kits provide to assure the best possible match between donors and recipients, and monitor antibody levels post-transplant for signs of rejection. What we do at Thermo Fisher Scientific literally can mean life or death to a recipient.

Everyone here is proud to be part of this work, but I have an even more personal reason to be thankful—my mom, sister and I have each benefitted from kidney transplants. As a recipient, I’m able to bring an added perspective to my work about the lifesaving importance of what we do.

If you’re looking ahead to a healthy future, you’ll discover that, at Thermo Fisher Scientific, each one of our extraordinary minds has a unique story to tell. And we all contribute to a singular mission—enabling our customers to make the world healthier, cleaner and safer.
