Summary

BREMEN-- Andreas Kreiter, a neuroscientist at the University of Bremen who uses macaques in his research, has been subjected to 2 years of vilification and violent attacks as the prime target of the German animal rights movement. Kreiter worries that the continued pressure and debates over the use of laboratory animals are harming German science, because many postdocs who study abroad are not returning to Germany.
