Established in 1940, the American Federation for Medical Research (AFMR) is an international multi-disciplinary association of scientists engaged in all areas of biomedical investigation-patient-oriented, translational, and basic research. Members are located at government facilities, medical centers, research institutions, and private industry in all 50 states and throughout the world. AFMR fosters research in the medical sciences, provides leadership in articulating and publicizing the aims and goals of scientific research, disseminates the knowledge medical research generates, and identifies and supports efforts to achieve these objectives.
AFMR repeatedly demonstrates how clinical and basic research efforts integrate to provide the scientific basis for medical practice. AFMR's translational aspect has broad reaching clinical applications and strengthens the fields of scientific study based in multiple medical disciplines.
