Chimpanzees in Biomedical and Behavioral Research:
Assessing the Necessity

This report from the National Academies responds to the question of whether there is still need for chimpanzees in biomedical and behavioral research given their unique biological and immunological traits and given advances in the development of other animal models, research tools, and methods.

These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on December 15, 2011 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
