Community touch

established educational efforts as well as the individual

efforts of Promega scientists who volunteer to teach

throughout the community (over 1,250 hours in 2012).

Promega also offers classes for our staff and customers

who need to learn more about molecular biology tools

and applications.

In 2012, over 35% of overall philanthropic contributions

were geared toward educational efforts. Initiatives supported

by Promega include:

The Human Genome Exhibition. In 2012 we began

supporting curriculum development around DNA analysis

with the Smithsonian and FNIH (Foundation of National

Institutes for Health) as part of the 10 Year Anniversary of

the sequencing of the human genome. We are proud to

support increased education and awareness about the far

reaching effects of the Human Genome Project through

the high tech exhibition opening in 2013 at the National

Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C., USA.

Promega Innovation Award in China. In 2012 Promega

announced sponsorship of an Innovation Award for young

scientists in China. This Award is in support of the newly

opened University of Wisconsin-Madison Innovation Office

in Shanghai, China. Over the next 5 years, Promega will

work with several life science societies

CHINA

in China to select and award young

talents whose innovations significantly

advance life science research. The

award will feature a cash prize and

options for visiting Promega facilities in Shanghai or

Madison, WI. We believe that this award will have positive

influence on stimulating innovation in the life sciences

research community in China.

Promega locations worldwide strive to support education

and create interest in science. A few examples of efforts

in 2012 include:

Promega Australia supports The

Smith Family “Learning for Life
