The U.S. Is Running Out of Research Monkeys

From a Wall Street Journal story by Nidhi Subbaraman titled “The U.S. Is Running Out of Research Monkeys”:

America’s monkey shortage is getting worse. The pandemic has exacerbated a continuing supply crunch, throttling research and threatening the country’s ability to respond to public health disasters, including the next pandemic.

That is according to a new report published Thursday by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine that noted that new ways of studying biology, using artificial-intelligence models or cells in culture, aren’t ready to replace testing in monkeys.
