As Threats of Violence Escalate, Primate Researchers Stand Firm.
Schneider, Alison
Chronicle of Higher Education, v46 n12 pA16-A18 Nov 12 1999
Scientists doing research on primates are increasingly being subjected to threats and acts of violence from animal rights groups. The intimidation has resulted in many laboratories taking extensive security measures. Some scientists claim, however, that there is no surrogate for animal research in understanding human diseases. There are fears that younger researchers will avoid primate research due to safety concerns. (DB)
