Perspective: Animal research in the Senate spotlight

Associate Professor James Bourne is a Monash researcher working with non human primates. He made an excellent presentation defending the use of NHPs to the recent Senate committee hearing on a proposed amendment by Senator Rhiannon, to ban the import of NHPs for medical research. This has profound implications for NHP research, and more generally, for all animal researchers to be upfront and informative to the tax paying public about the animal based work and its necessity for understanding how our bodies do and don't work.

See the submissions page for details of the issue and no.12 submission for James Bourne's written submission to the committee. You can follow James Bourne on Twitter at https://twitter.com/neurdboy.
