Since 1961, AIRI has promoted educational efforts affecting research funding and regulation for our member institutions and independent research institutions.  The AIRI Government Affairs Committee (GAC) and our Washington office educate policymakers about the contributions of independent research institutions to health care and economic development in this country; and promote aggressive funding for medical research. 

AIRI promotes and facilitates the free exchange of “Best Practices” and information among member institutions including: funding, demographics, benchmarking, statistical information, operational practices, experiential learning, and more.
AIRI's annual meeting and listservs also provide an excellent means for expanding education in our field.
