Americans for Medical Progress AMP is a charity that aims to protect and advocate for society's investment in medical research As a specific goal, AMP states that it promotes "public understanding of and support for the appropriate role of animals in biomedical research so that scientists are able to continue their quest for cures and improved methods of treatment for illness, injury and disease" Although in favor of moderate animal welfare measures, the AMP is often sharply critical of more radical animal rights groups such as PETA and the similarly named Americans For Medical Advancement

AMP issues the Albert B Sabin Hero of Science Award to honor leading medical scientists and advocates of biomedical research Past recipients have included Dr Sabin himself, Nobel laureate Joseph E Murray, vaccine designer Maurice Hilleman, and herceptin developer Dennis Slamon, as well as opera legend Beverly Sills, actress Barbara Barrie, and former U S Representatives John E Porter and Patricia Schroeder for their support and advocacy of medical research

In Spring 2008 the organization awarded Tom Holder, the spokesman for Pro-Test, the Michael D Hayre fellowship in public outreach1 This allowed Holder to move to the United States,2 and with the support of AMP, set up Speaking of Research a campus-oriented group supporting animal research with similar tactics to Pro-Test In July 2009 AMP announced three new Hayre Fellows to work on local and national advocacy efforts3

In April 2009 Americans for Medical Progress launched the Pro-Test Petition in conjunction with Speaking of Research and UCLA Pro-Test According to Holder the petition offered the public "an opportunity to show their support for the scientists and their opposition to the use of threats and violence"4 This petition, to defend animal research, is similar to The People's Petition which gained over 20,000 signatures in the United Kingdom The Pro-Test Petition has accumulated over 10,000 signatures to date4
