Orlando, Fla—After animal rights' protesters ransacked his office at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine in 1990 and sent letters assailing him to the media, colleagues, and neighbors, Adrian Morrison, DVM, PhD, became even more of an activist himself.
"I was attacked because I often spoke out to defend biomedical research," Morrison said at a workshop on explaining animal research to the public. The session was held at the joint annual meeting in June of the American Sleep Disorders Association (which became the American Academy of Sleep Medicine on July 1) and the Sleep Research Society (SRS).
