We tried to find a unifying theme for this Week in Review — really, we did! — but ultimately, summer’s here, and sometimes, a scattershot title’s all you got. Without further ado, let’s dive in to what happened last week.
Princeton is in trouble again for its treatment of primates in lab research; this time, the university was cited by the USDA for six violations, regarding the feeding and water schedule for the monkeys. New PU spokesman Martin Mbugua, asked about the violations, said, “Princeton’s approach to animal care is based on a commitment … to ensure that our facilities make use of established best practices. Only animals that are well cared for can provide beneficial scientific data and help achieve research goals and outcomes.”
