60 Years of Cultivating Hope: Celebrating with Gibco

Updated: Oct 6, 2022

Ever heard of someone throwing you a party to celebrate THEIR birthday? Well, that’s exactly what Gibco, a prominent cell culture brand available through Thermo Fisher Scientific, has been doing at locations around the world to celebrate their 60th anniversary and 60 years of loving cell culture! I guess they recognized the Hope Bio team as fellow cell culture fanatics because our company was chosen as a recipient of one of those special celebratory events. We welcomed members of the Thermo team to the Hope Bio headquarters where they hosted a party for our entire staff and, in return, we gave them a Texas-sized, Hope-style gift — a music video!


What are Gibco and Hope Bio up to? What else but saving the world!!
