Urge your Representatives to Audit the National Eye Institute

From Stop Animal Exploitation Now! (SAEN)

Tell your Federal Representatives to request a General Accounting Office (GAO) audit of the funding of primate brain mapping projects. There are at least 57 researchers funded by the National Eye Institute (NEI) who are all working on the same projects...experiments on animals.

INFORMATION

The group Stop Animal Exploitation Now (SAEN) has obtained dozens of grant applications from the National Eye Institute (NEI) through the freedom of Information Act. Between the grant applications they have, and the data they have gotten from the CRISP system and medical journal articles SAEN can demonstrate now that there are 57 (and there may be more) researchers who are funded by the NEI who are all doing the same project.

It is criminal to waste this amount of money. These grants use approximately $110 million in five years.

The Primate Center at the University of Washington has three researchers that work on extremely similar studies:

Dennis Dacey's grant is for 19 years and he receives $2,543,188 every five years.

Albert Fuchs research has been going on for 34 years. He receives $3,482,711 every five years.

Chris Kaneko's research has been ongoing for 17 years. He receives $2,768,625 every five years. That is at least $879,4524 every five years for basically the same study.
