- Access to a broad network of scientists and industry leaders to help support and implement your efforts;

Our Hayre Fellowship program has shown that creative, realistic and
well-designed programs have a positive and lasting influence on public
attitudes toward the importance of animals to biomedical research. Check back this fall for 2014 application details!
The AMP/Michael D. Hayre Fellowship in Public Outreach was launched by Americans for Medical Progress in 2008 to honor its late chairman, who was a Vice President of Saint Jude Children’s Research Hospital at the time of his death in 2001. The AMP/Hayre Fellowship enables young adults to design and implement public outreach programs about the valuable role of laboratory animals in biomedical research. Each Fellow receives a stipend and program expenses, as well as guidance and resources from AMP.
Americans for Medical Progress is a national 501(c)3 nonprofit that protects society’s investment in biomedical research by nurturing public appreciation for the humane, necessary and valuable use of animals in medicine. AMP provides accurate and incisive information to foster a balanced public debate on the animal research issue, ensuring that among the voices heard are those whose lives have been touched by research, and those who work in the field.
