Where Do Our Monkeys Come From?

The monkeys used at the Tübingen Max Planck Institute are purchased from various European primate centers. The law stipulates that animals used in research must have been bred for this purpose and that the animal’s origin must be documented (German Animal Welfare Act §9, para. 2.7).
