Corporate Philanthropy

Making a Difference in the Communities Where We Live and Work

At Daiichi Sankyo, Inc., we believe our business extends beyond the discovery and development of therapies for unmet medical needs. It's also our mission to make a positive difference in the communities where we live and work. Not because others expect it of us, but because we expect it of ourselves. Individual and collective contributions to our communities are an integral part of the fabric of Daiichi Sankyo.

We focus our philanthropic efforts on three primary areas: education, community and healthcare – with an emphasis on cardiovascular disease and underserved populations. Just as our scientists dedicate their talents to finding solutions to disease, we dedicate our philanthropic initiatives to programs that help people prevent and manage chronic illnesses.

Students 2 Science

Daiichi Sankyo, Inc. works with Students 2 Science (S2S) to improve the science literacy of students in underserved inner-city communities in New Jersey. Middle and high school students visit the S2S Technology Center as a field trip from school and participate in hands-on science experiments using sophisticated instrumentation in the S2S laboratory. Students work side-by-side with volunteer professional scientists and leave the S2S program with more confidence and understanding of the benefits of study and careers in the STEM professions.
