Biomedical Research Awareness Day (BRAD) is an initiative committed to educating the public on the importance of biomedical research and the humane use of animals.

COVID-19 has highlighted the role of animals in public health and vaccine development. Let’s help the world see how animal research benefits each of us every day by sharing our stories of health and survival.

We are collecting personal stories about diseases or medical conditions that have directly impacted your life or that of a loved one, human or animal.

On April 15th, watch as BRAD social media posts connect real patient stories with animal research and the species who contributed to the treatment that benefited your friend, family member, pet, or yourself!

We encourage you to submit a photo with your story and be a part of the BRAD poster series to be printed & included in BRAD 2021 boxes.
