Experiments Using Non-human Primates

In our news or take action pages, we report on the types of research to which non-human primates are being subjected. Bear in mind that these reports comprise only a few of the dozens of similar experiments published each week. To get a sense of how many such publications there are overall, you can use the following complex search term (or click on it to do the search automatically): (((((("macaques"[Title/Abstract]) OR ("monkeys"[Title/Abstract])) OR ("baboons"[Title/Abstract])) OR ("vervets"[Title/Abstract])) OR ("marmosets"[Title/Abstract])) OR ("bonobos"[Title/Abstract])) OR ("chimpanzees"[Title/Abstract]).

Although we emphasise welfare issues with respect to how the research impacted on the individuals, please bear in mind that the non-human primates used were all essentially wild animals, even if bred in captivity. Because of this, the suffering and stress of being in captivity was integral in every case.

You can find out more information on all grants made by the National Institutes of Health, the largest funding entity in the US, and all their agencies by using the NIH RePORTER. You can search by grant number, investigator, recipient institution and more (see instructions).

In the following, the citations are listed alphabetically by first author, with links to where we reported the research.
