Community - Stronger Together

AIRI is more than a national organization of more than 90 independent, non-profit research institutes. It is a COMMUNITY. AIRI members believe “none of us is as smart as all of us.” By working together and freely sharing operational and experiential learnings, the scope of research can be accelerated and expanded for biological and behavioral sciences.  

AIRI provides a variety of resources and services for independent research institutes, but none more important than member networking. Member institutions consistently rank networking opportunities as the primary benefit of membership. AIRI networking tools better enable member institutions to complete invaluable research that advances knowledge and improves human health.

The most popular peer community networking resources are the annual meetings and listservs.

The AIRI Annual Meeting has consistently been the one meeting that members make sure they attend each year.  Member committees program all of the focus groups, breakouts, roundtables, and general sessions on today's most revelent issues and presentations.
