Your tax dollars – used for cruel primate experiments

Humane Research Australia is concerned that Australian Government funding is being allocated to researchers who use primates in their experiments. 
Government funding of animal cruelty and exploitation is unnecessary and no longer has a place in a modern, enlightened society.

The Results of the 2016 NHMRC Grant Application Round were published on the NHMRC website late last year. It states, “To date, the 2016 NHMRC Grant Application Round has resulted in the commitment of more than $828 million to fund health and medical research including 1056 new grants to universities, medical research institutions and hospitals across Australia.” 

Amongst the summary of results, two applications for Monash University and two for University of Melbourne were identified as potentially involving primates, receiving over $2.3 million between them.
