FRAMINGHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 8, 2019--SCIEX, a global leader in life science analytical technologies, announced today that the company again partnered with the World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF), one of the world’s leading cancer prevention charities. Since 2015, SCIEX has donated over $41,000 to WCRF – and, together, they are releasing today the first of a three-part, female-centered blog series exploring breast cancer and offering new insights into the future of cancer prevention.

The WCRF supports groundbreaking research into the links between cancer and diet, nutrition, and physical activity. Hundreds of thousands of cancer cases could be prevented each year through reducing exposure to risk factors, including those related to food and body weight 1. However, greater public awareness of how to manage these risk factors will be required to reduce preventable cancers. The new blog series is one of several initiatives that SCIEX has developed, to help raise such awareness.

“We greatly value our partnership with SCIEX,” said Adam Daly, Corporate Fundraising Partnerships Manager, WCRF. “The company’s continued fundraising efforts have made a significant contribution to our work over the years and will help to achieve our vision of living in a world where no one develops a preventable cancer.”

The first part of the blog takes an in-depth look at breast cancer from a survivor’s viewpoint. The second part, which will be published on March 15 th, examines new WCRF-funded research into how a woman’s body mass index throughout her life affects her risk of breast cancer. The blog series concludes on March 22 nd with a focus on how cancer prevention has evolved over the years, and future possibilities for reducing disease occurrence.

“SCIEX is honored to be able to support healthcare research and discoveries that will help to deliver life-changing answers for people around the world,” says Inese Lowenstein, President, SCIEX. “As a result of our outstanding employee participation in SCIEX annual engagement activities, we are again able to continue to raise awareness of preventable cancers affecting women.”

In addition to this partnership, SCIEX Australia and New Zealand are also highlighting International Women’s Day with a newsletter featuring ten inspiring women customers, celebrating their successes. See here for their stories.
