Message From Our President
Although each year presents its own challenges and opportunities, 2020 proved to be exceptional on both fronts at the Foundation for Biomedical Research. Despite managing the unprecedented challenges presented by a worldwide pandemic, FBR enthusiastically pressed forward with its mission to increase public understanding of animal research. And our success in 2020 was made possible because of YOU, our most loyal supporters. Your support enables us to continue our work, so it is with tremendous gratitude that we say “Thank You” for believing in what we do!
Thanks to animal research, vaccines were developed at a record pace for the novel coronavirus in 2020. The research that made these vaccines possible took years of work with animals models. We owe a debt of gratitude to the many animals, scientists, veterinarians, animal care staff and first line responders whose tireless efforts have given us hope that life will return to normal.
I feel truly fortunate for the opportunity to serve as president of FBR and to play my small part in helping research continue. Thanks once again to YOU, our donors and partners, for getting us to where we are today.
Our sights are set high for 2021.
Matthew R. Bailey
President, Foundation for Biomedical Research
