We accelerate the understanding and adoption of the world’s most innovative health technologies.


The future of health is here. After decades of fundamental research and technological advancement, scientists can better understand the human genome, identify disease earlier, map its progression, and proactively intervene to help people more effectively sustain their health.

Thermal is uniquely built to assist the most innovative brands and leaders enabling this new frontier of digital health solutions. We are not a generic public relations agency supporting generic science. Rather, we provide a bespoke mix of strategic services for teams blurring traditional boundaries and working to solve our most intractable health challenges and radically improve the lives of millions.

As a result of our work together, digital health brands and notable executives and scientists are better positioned to lead the critical debates – ethical, legal, societal, technical, and political – that come with developing and scaling the most disruptive advances of our time.
