Our ability to translate science into new hope for patients around the world hinges on the ability to prepare the next generation of leaders in life sciences fields. Excellence in other fields such as technology and engineering are needed to ensure global competitiveness and drive innovation. Because of this, Cubist’s philanthropic efforts are focused on supporting organizations with programs in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). We award grants to STEM programs, primarily those targeting underserved middle and high school students in Massachusetts, and we encourage our employees to volunteer with these organizations.
