Charles River Laboratories is an early-stage contract research organization (CRO) with a local touch. We have dedicated employees around the world and are passionate about our role in improving the quality of people’s lives. Every day, we have the ability to make a difference, and through our Corporate Citizenship program, we can be the difference – to the animals under our care, the patients who rely on the treatments we are helping to develop, our people, and our planet. Our commitment to improve lives extends beyond therapeutic cures to the communities where we live and work.
Together, we have supported the development of ~85% of the drugs approved by the FDA in 2019. Our mission, excellent science, and strong sense of purpose guide us in all that we do. We approach each day with the knowledge that our work helps to improve the health and well-being of many across the globe.
