Welcome to
Lovelace Biomedical

Lovelace Biomedical is a not-for-profit preclinical contract research organization with a rich history of helping its pharmaceutical and biotechnology partners achieve great things.

“Larger organizations tend to get bogged down in bureaucracy. They don’t want to, but it is a natural evolution of keeping a lot of people on the same page. I used to work for a large CRO and the first thing I noticed when I came to LBRI is its ability to make changes on the fly. I cannot imagine how clients wouldn’t love this personalized touch on their study. In fact, I love being involved in that personalized touch, because I get to talk with the scientists on the other side. We learn together. What could be better?”
