Junko | Senior Director, R&D
What I do at Thermo Fisher Scientific sometimes makes an impact on the biggest news stories in the world. During the Ebola outbreak, our team developed a fast, flexible screening kit, and helped to train professionals in Africa to use the kits in monitoring the disease and controlling its spread.
When I first started at Thermo Fisher, I was part of the team that developed the world’s first commercial instrument that detects and analyzes microorganisms in real time—ushering in the era of rapid molecular diagnostics. What’s next? Our team is working to detect pathogens that cause black fever, among other diseases. At Thermo Fisher, I’m at the forefront of technology and innovation. Our work helps our customers create vaccines, speed diagnostics and monitor the spread of diseases—impacting the lives of millions of people around the world.
If you’re ready to make advancements in the world and in your career, 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—to enable our customers to make the world healthier, cleaner and safer.
