REGISTER NOW FOR BIOMEDICAL RESEARCH DAY 2023

In 1993, President Bill Clinton proclaimed October 21 – Alfred Nobel’s birthday – as “National Biomedical Research Day,” setting it aside as a day “… we celebrate the central role played by biomedical research in improving human health and longevity, and we acknowledge the promise this wide-ranging endeavor holds for securing the future physical and mental well-being of people around the world.” In 2006, the Massachusetts legislature followed suit and proclaimed October 21 as Biomedical Research Day in the Commonwealth.

Each year, MSMR celebrates Biomedical Research Day by honoring select individuals for their contributions to biomedical research in the region. Honorees are selected by the MSMR Board of Directors in four categories: an Investigator, an Educator, a Government Leader and a Business Leader.

This year, Biomedical Research Day will be marked on FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13, with a celebratory luncheon and awards program from noon to 2 p.m. at our member company AstraZeneca in Waltham, Mass.

MSMR members are all most cordially invited to attend for free, thanks to the generosity of our sponsors. However, registration is strictly required to comply with all security procedures. Please visit here for more information and to register. 

For more information on this year’s program, contact MSMR President Jim O’Reilly.

We are looking for speakers/presenters who promote exploration, collaboration and innovation in shared responsibilities with all three I’s, as well as within procedures governing Conflict of Interest; Research Misconduct; Export/Import Control; Law & Compliance; and Ethics and Foreign Influence. 

Support for and collaboration among compliance committees such as IACUCs, IBCs and IRBs is a necessity. Many of these compliance areas are intercon-nected, and these committees often are dealing with many of the same investigators. When we collaborate and work together, it can reduce redundancies, making it easier for the investigators to stay in compliance. Compliance procedures at work ensure that you can continue to conduct your research – safely, responsibly, ethically and securely – while helping to identify and communicate compliance and security concerns. 

Through these collaborative efforts, conference attendees will benefit from the combined skills and knowledge represented in MSMR, NCABR, MeRTEC and the FBI to increase their understanding of all that is involved in the vital issues facing the life science community.
