Mission Statement:

Bridging the miles to serve it’s members with information, networking and learning opportunities within the field of Laboratory Animal Science, so that we, as members, may serve the animals we care for, our profession, and science to the best of our ability.


Currently, the NRMB has 110 members and there is one joint scientific session and branch meeting per year. Due to the large geographical distance that separates the members, it is not possible to meet more frequently. Therefore, most branch business is conducted using e-mail, telephone and mailings. The branch publishes it’s newsletter, “Contact”, on a quarterly basis. 

The NRMB awards a Technician of the Year Award at the annual meeting. It includes a plaque and a $350 honorarium. The applicants must be in non-supervisory positions and have daily contact with animals. 

The NRMB also sponsors two awards given at the Montana Science Fair to High School and Junior High School students for outstanding projects. This sponsorship is through the University of Montana Foundation and the NRMB is proud to sponsor awards given to promising young scientists. 

The Annual Scientific Session and Meeting is held at the University of Montana’s Yellow Bay Biological Station located on the east shore of Flathead Lake in northwestern Montana. Attendees are treated to a true outdoor experience while socializing, learning, networking and taking care of branch business. The Station is the epitome of “Montana Hospitality” with it’s wrap-around deck, beach side volleyball court, and rustic one room cabins. The food is awesome and the views are unparalleled.
