|PSBR's mission is to promote a better public understanding of the value of biomedicial research including the vital role the responsible use of animals plays in improving the quality of 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!|
This fun and exciting classroom project brings together the scientific method, biomedical research, and nutrition. Through an animal feeding project with lab rats, students witness the effects of nutrition and how it relates to disease.
PSBR visits high school, middle school, and elementary school classrooms. We also visit colleges including undergraduate and graduate level classrooms. All presentations are interactive and are tailored for the age-level, class time, and the topic requested.
Students in K-12th grade have the opportunity to win cash prizes, and discover the connection between biomedical research and their life through our essay and poster contests. The submission deadline is April 1, 2018.
