Mission Statement

The Pennsylvania Society for Biomedical Research (PSBR) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit science education organization formed in 1990 by universities, medical schools, pharmaceutical firms, and professional societies in Pennsylvania and Delaware to foster a better understanding of the benefits of biomedical research to human and animal health, as well as the necessity for the humane treatment of animals in such research.

PSBR’s mission is to promote a better public understanding of the value of biomedical research including the vital role the responsible use of animals plays in improving the quality of human and animal health.

Description

The goal of the PSBR is to educate the public, including students and teachers in grades K-16, about biomedical research and the vital role the responsible use of animals plays in improving the quality of both human and animal health.

Our role is to inform, educate, champion, advocate, and communicate to those who can have an impact on or be impacted by biomedical research- which is just about everyone!

We in the scientific community are committed to advancing knowledge that is critical to the development of safe and effective medical therapies needed by individual patients and even animals. The humane use of animals in research is essential in this effort, at least for the foreseeable future.

The society and its members seek to assure all that strict laws, regulations, and professional standards govern the use and treatment of laboratory animals. We are dedicated to informing people that these laws are being ethically and responsibly followed in research laboratories.
