Inside the Laboratories of UC Davis: The Truth About Primate Experimentation
By Michael A. Budkie, A.H.T., Executive Director, SAEN

Introduction

Primate experimentation is an extremely controversial issue. Animal protectionists question both the moral and scientific basis of primate experimentation. Pro-experimentation organizations imply that medical science would come to a screeching halt without the use of primates.

However, the experimentation itself is not often discussed in any level of detail. The public does not know what is being discussed when these issues are raised because research facilities are not typically open to the casual visitor. Therefore taxpayers do not have any idea what their money is subsidizing. Is the research unique? Is it scientifically relevant? Is it conducted humanely? We do not know.

To answer these questions several research protocols from the University of California, Davis will be examined. The research projects will be examined from the point of view of scientific validity, animal treatment, and legality.
