NJABR continues to lead efforts to improve communication and foster collaboration with our partners from state and national advocacy organizations. NJABR dedicates time and energy to cultivating strong relationships with, among others, the National Association for Biomedical Research, the Foundation for Biomedical Research, Americans for Medical Progress, the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science, and States United for Biomedical Research to drive successful programming and to strengthen the community through collaboration and cooperation.
Through cooperation with our colleagues, we greatly enhance the value of our advocacy.
- NJABR and colleagues at several state associations made great strides in promoting greater cooperation, sharing resources and expertise under the States United for Biomedical Research umbrella (SUBR). We are working to ensure an effective strategy to protect research and increase public appreciation and understanding for biomedical research.
- NJABR and partners at The Pennsylvania Society for Biomedical Research and North Carolina Association for Biomedical Research jointly planned and hosted events to expand the educational opportunities offered to the biomedical research community.
- NJABR continues to be a leader of organized coalitions to address legal and advocacy issues.
- We shared NJABR’s advocacy successes and strategies with our colleagues at the New Jersey Branch of the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science and offered an advocacy presentation at the Tri-Branch Symposium.
