DANVERS, MA (PRWEB) - April 5, 2018, Cell Signaling Technology (CST), a leading provider of antibodies, kits, and services, has opened a new office in Shanghai China to support the rapidly expanding China life science market and the growth of the CST business in the country.
The new facility triples the office and warehouse footprint and will feature CST's Global Innovation and Training Academy. "The decision to expand our presence in China was a logical step in our business growth strategy," said Michael J. Comb, Ph.D., Cell Signaling Technology President, and CEO. "It is important to make continued investments in this key market for CST. Customer satisfaction is our highest priority and this expansion will give us opportunities to establish two-way training and collaboration with our customers and to improve our product delivery service."
Jay Dong, Vice President and General Manager, China, and APAC, and Co-president of the Consortium of Academia-Industry and Entrepreneurship of the Chinese Society of Cell Biology said, "It is an exciting time for life science researchers in China. The country is filled with great scientific opportunity and as a leader in life sciences, CST is taking all the necessary steps to support research in China. Also, this new office space allows CST to grow the local team and provides an inviting working environment that includes great amenities like an onsite gym. Our new training facility will help support and educate the next generation of scientists. Together with scientists in China, our mission is to help solve the most difficult problems in key disease and research areas such as cancer, neurological disorders, immunology, and epigenetics, so that we can all live healthier and happier. We have had a great start, but we have a long way to go."
CST will be hosting scientific seminars and workshops in April at our Shanghai Global Innovation and Training Academy, in close collaboration with the Chinese Society of Cell Biology and world-class scientists.
