The University of Utah Monkeys
The University of Utah is not well known for its research using primates. Today, only two vivisection laboratories there are experimenting on monkeys. Audie G. Leventhal's lab, whose university website notes: "Dr. Leventhal studies the structure, function and development of the visual pathways in normal cats and monkeys as well as in cats and monkeys having abnormal early experiences and genetic defects," and Richard L. (Dick) Siegler's which induces terminal kidney failure in baboons of an unnamed species.

As of January 1, 2003 we have received information on two monkeys at the University of Utah, and likely, these animals are Leventhal's past victims, left over from his National Eye Institute grant: 5R01EY004951. This seems to be the only study conducted by any vivisector at the University of Utah that used members of the species, Macaca fascicularis (the so-called cynomologous macaques, or long-tail macaque, or crab-eating macaque.)

We believe it possible that these two isolated monkeys may be the only ones housed on the U of U campus.
