NWABR works to promote the public's trust in biomedical research and its ethical conduct. NWABR works with a diverse group of stakeholders including academic, industry, and non-profit research institutes, together with healthcare, and voluntary health organizations. We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
NWABR is dedicated to building connections between science and the broader community in order to increase understanding of biomedical research and the process by which scientific knowledge advances. We provide service to the scientific community in order to ensure that research meets the highest ethical standards. We also build bridges between scientists, school students and the broader community in order to help people see the connections between their own lives, science and society. We seek to support every participant in becoming part of a scientifically literate community, and helping every citizen recognize the role research plays in his or her life.
NWABR's educational programs are supported by a diverse group of foundations, corporations and individual donors. In addition, NWABR receives hundreds of smaller donations each year especially targeted to work with school students and the broader community. Finally, our work is supported by thousands of hours of volunteer time each year, from members of the science community who work to support science education and outreach.
