Volunteers are the backbone of a successful organization!  Join PSBR and help us create an army of volunteers to spread the message about the responsible use of animals in research. Volunteering as little as one hour per year makes a big difference!

As professionals in laboratory animal science, it is important to promote public understanding and to encourage discussion about the use of animals in research.

PSBR can train you on how to successfully communicate the positive contributions you make to our society. The hope is to foster a culture where laboratory animal science professionals will feel accepted, valued, and recognized for their hard work and dedication to improving the lives of animals and people.

There are several ways to become a public speaker for biomedical research. PSBR can provide individual training, group training at your facility, or group training at conferences. Please contact us for more information.



Classroom visits- You can choose the age group you'd like to talk to.  Topics range from animal care to biomedical research to careers in science. Materials, training, and mentoring provided. Students enjoy hearing from different science professionals and learning about the different career options associated with biomedical research and all aspects of science. Click here to request to visit a classroom.
