World Laboratory Animal Liberation Week

World Laboratory Animal Liberation Week is the week that surrounds April 24th every year - It's a national week of protests, media events, etc. at laboratories to stop testing and research on animals

Resources

The links listed below are useful in obtaining information about research facilities and the experiments that they perform.  By using these resources in combination it is possible to obtain a wealth of information about the experiments that are underway at laboratories in your area.  If you have any questions on how to utilize these sites please feel free to contact us at [email protected]

 

THE CRISP SYSTEM

 

This link will take you to the CRISP (Computer Retrieval of Information
on Scientific Projects).   This database catalogues all research projects funded by the National Institutes of Health.  Searches can be done in many ways.  The Institution field can be used to search for projects at a specific facility.  The State field can be used in a similar way.  Searches can also be done using the Search Terms field to find types of research (i.e. vision, cocaine, etc.).  This field can also be used to search for specific species (macaca – macaque monkeys; saimiri – squirrel monkeys; callithricidae – lemur, dog, cat, guinea pig, rabbit, rat, mouse, etc.).  I recommend that you search in fiscal year 2001 (select in the fiscal year field) because all fiscal year 2002 reports may not be available.  It is also very effective to use the “and” parameter to combine searches in different fields.  For example type macaca in the Search Terms field with a state (i.e. California) in the state field and you will receive a listing of all experiments funded in California that involve macaque (macaca) monkeys.

THE NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH EXTRAMURAL AWARDS PAGE

 

Another useful site within the NIH is the Extramural Awards Page.  This page makes financial data on both institutions and specific grants available.

THE UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE/ANIMAL & PLANT HEALTH INSPECTION SERVICE

 

This next link is for the United States Department of Agriculture/Animal & Plant Health Inspection Service (USDA/APHIS)

 

This site has useful information in the press releases section, the efoia electronic reading room, and the publications section (especially the Animal Welfare Enforcement Report).

MEDICAL JOURNAL SEARCHES

 

Another useful resource is the PUBMED site that can be used to search for medical journal articles about any experiment.  Searches can be performed on species, field of research, author name, institution, etc.

NATIONAL CENTER FOR RESEARCH RESOURCES

 

One area that is useful in examining primate research is the National Center for Research Resources site.  This branch of the NIH funds the eight regional primate research centers, as well as other breeding facilities.

DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE EXPERIMENTATION

 

Military animal experimentation can be examined by using the DoD Biomedical Research database.  This database can be searched similarly to the CRISP system using species, area of research, facility name, etc.
