Each year on October 21st we celebrate Biomedical Research Day. On that day we thank all of our colleagues who dedicate their work to to improving our understanding of the processes of life and to finding life-saving, life-changing cures. On October 21st we celebrate the work that they do every day. MSMR publishes a poster for our members to place in their facilities recognizing the critical role their employees play in biomedical research. We have a special luncheon at which we honor four individuals for their exemplary contribution to biomedical research – an investigator, an educator, a business leader and a public official. We will announce the 2016 Honorees on September 17th.
