Zymo Research Corp. Launches 'Give Back to Science' Campaign

IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Zymo Research understands that science may help solve some of the world's most pressing problems, especially in developing countries. Unfortunately, many scientists in emergent nations face barriers to accessing hands-on education, laboratory equipment, and supplies. That's why Zymo Research developed its 'Give Back to Science' campaign. From Monday, Nov. 19, 2018, to Friday, Nov. 30, 2018, Zymo Research will donate a portion of its domestic sales to Seeding Labs, a nonprofit organization based in Boston, MA, whose mission is to empower every scientist to transform the world. Since its inception in 2008, Seeding Labs' flagship program Instrumental Access has donated over 200 tons of laboratory equipment and supplies to scientists at 67 institutions in 34 developing countries.

Businesses who purchase any Zymo Research product during the two-week period will be able to support scientists in Seeding Labs' worldwide network. By giving back to the scientific community, Zymo Research will make a positive impact in the biomedical field. They believe that investing in the scientific community is a hallmark of responsible corporate citizenship. Consumers who order online at https://www.zymoresearch.com, through Nov. 30, 2018, will ensure their purchase counts towards the donation goal. OEM and custom supply sales do not apply.

"Our commitment, to aid organizations like Seeding Labs helps to meet our mission to contribute to the greater good of humanity," said Dr. Marc Van Eden, Vice President of Business Development at Zymo Research. "The 'Give Back to Science' program will assist Seeding Labs to do incredibly important work, specifically in economically developing nations. We are honored to support Seeding Labs which has a stellar ten-year history of helping scientists."

"We are excited to be partnering with an organization that shares our vision of improving the world by providing scientists with the tools they need to advance life-changing research," explained Dr. Nina Dudnik, Founder and CEO of Seeding Labs. "We know that great talent is everywhere, but resources are not, and we very much appreciate Zymo Research's dedication to helping close that resource gap."
