We promote and enhance biomedical and biological research, including the humane care and use of animals, for the improved health and well-being of people, animals, and the environment.

The goal of MSMR is to foster a better understanding of biomedicine by improving basic literacy in and enthusiasm for the biological sciences among the public, the media, and future generations.

Although membership services are important to our work, a great part of our mission is directed to the public in general.

Education is necessarily a major component in the pursuit of our mission. We teach students; we train teachers; we develop curricula that increase science literacy and promote understanding of the importance of biomedical research to our lives.
