Animal Advocacy Group Urges NIH to Defund Primate Experiments at Harvard

White Coat Waste Project (WCW) submitted a complaint to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) about Harvard Medical School’s NIH-funded primate experiments, alleging that Harvard has violated federal law by failing to publicly disclose how taxpayer money has been used on the experiments. WCW is urging NIH to investigate alleged disclosure violations and defund the experiments. Harvard Law School’s Animal Law & Policy Clinic is among those who have previously called upon the NIH to terminate funding for the school’s primate experiments.
