Our Shared Responsibility

We are committed to catalyzing change to make a positive impact on human health.

Our mission compels our employees to look beyond our individual walls and out into the world to see barriers that exist.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are not merely trendy buzz words to us; they are part of our core values.

Recognizing inequities in the world inspires our culture of engagement and purpose, and drives our multifaceted outreach to local and global communities.

How We're Catalyzing Change

Global Health Equity – The 221b Foundation

Our 221b Foundation was founded to further our commitment to making a positive impact on global health. We partner with Global Health Institutions to develop, produce, and distribute diagnostic solutions for infectious diseases to developing countries.

Associate Scientist
I committed to run the 2022 ASICS Falmouth Road Race for The Quell Foundation, and raised $4,510.00 in support pledged by Sherlock employees and matched by the Sherlock Gives Initiative. The Quell Foundation is a nonprofit that strives to reduce the number of suicides, overdoses and the incarceration of people with mental health illness. I’m grateful to my Sherlock colleagues for choosing to support an open, judgment-free dialogue to normalize the conversation around mental health.

STEM Workforce Equity

Sherlock Biosciences Employee-run Internship & Co-op program

Sherlock’s employee-run Internship & Co-op Program is part of our commitment to enabling STEM workforce equity by providing professional development and mentorship to students from underrepresented groups interested in exploring a variety of careers within the biotechnology industry.

Sherlock partners with the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center to participate in the largest state-sponsored STEM internship program in the U.S., The Internship Challenge, to provide paid internship opportunities. Students in the state of Massachusetts, or from HBCU’s across the country, can register with the MLSC to apply for internships with Sherlock. Learn More.

Hands-On Experience

With a focus on engagement, our program pairs each intern with a Sherlock employee for the duration of their internship for a hands-on learning experience.


Our program gives Sherlock employees the opportunity to provide professional mentorship to students in a range of critical functions including Research & Development, Marketing, Product Strategy, Human Resources, Operations, and Finance.

We believe that it is imperative to improve racial, ethnic, gender, and economic disparities in the STEM workforce. By creating an inclusive environment for diverse students to gain exposure to professional development, we will empower the next generation to drive innovation in our industry.
