Peak Serum, Inc. is proud to announce its 2018 Cares for Cures Grant recipient, Russell Pachynski of the Washington University School of Medicine.

The Cares for Cures Grant was born from Peak Serum’s mission to support research to cure diseases through the donation of Fetal Bovine Serum. Research labs and organizations are encouraged to apply for donations of Fetal Bovine Serum through the Peak Serum website and grants are given each fiscal year.

Pachynski, Assistant Professor at Washington University School of Medicine, is the second recipient of the Cares for Cures Grant.
