Established in 1981, the Foundation for Biomedical Research (FBR) is the nation's oldest and largest organization dedicated to improving human and veterinary health by promoting public understanding and support for humane and responsible animal research. FBR is the leading voice of scientific reason and medical progress in the ongoing, sometimes violent debate that surrounds animal research. Through its innovative educational programs, FBR works to inform the news media, teachers, students and parents, pet owners and other groups about the essential need for lab animals in medical and scientific research and discovery. It serves as an accessible, reliable resource for the news media and works to bring American journalists and scientists together to promote exceptional and ongoing news coverage that contributes to public appreciation and respect for responsible animal research.FBR also monitors and analyzes the activities of animal activists. Its illegal incidents report is a record of criminal activities committed in the name of "animal rights." As a nonprofit, tax-exempt public foundation under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, FBR receives no government funding and relies exclusively on private contributors to underwrite its programs and services.
