UCSF Targeted for Protests

SAN FRANCISCO -- The University of California, San Francisco -- already being asked to refund millions of dollars in federal grants because of the way it treats research subjects -- will be targeted for a major protest today by animal rights activists.

The protest -- one of dozens being held across the nation for "National Primate Liberation Week" -- will be held today, 12:15 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. at UCSF (513 Parnassus) by Army of Compassion, an animal rights group.

UCSF, which has been fined nearly $100,000 in recent years for Animal Welfare Act violations, should be required to refund millions in grants, wrote SAEN, a research watchdog based in Ohio, in an appeal to the National Institutes of Health and federal Inspector General.
