Primates in Medical Research – Free Literature

The following post by Richard Scrase of UAR discusses a new free e-book (also available as pdf) which Understanding Animal Research (UAR) and Moshe Bushmitz has produced. It’s well worth a download, so please share with friends.

How do researchers work with primates? Which species do they use? What has research with primates revealed? How are the primates looked after?

These are the questions answered in our new iBook, Primates in Medical Research. Making full use of the iBook’s capability to show video, images and sound, Primates in Medical Research shows the vital role of primates in medical research. The iBook feature recent video clips recorded in primate research and breeding facilities in the UK, US and Israel. Its galleries include over 80 images of primates that illustrate the iBook’s 71 pages, along with archive material and a timeline showing medical advances with primates stretching back a century.
