There’s a handful of businesses in the little industrial park there, but it appears the protests are directed at Northern Biomedical Research, 1210 Pontaluna Road.
Media reports from two years ago recount a group called Speak Up protesting that company’s use of animals in its scientific research. CLICK HERE to visit the group’s Facebook page.
Northern Biomedical Research’s website (northernbiomedical.com) says the company “offers a wide array of services including study design, data collection and analysis, quality assurance, MRI, computer modeling, specialty surgical procedures, full necropsy capabilities and generation of scientific study reports.”
I called the company, but the recording didn’t allow me to leave a message. I also sent the company an e-mail requesting information and have not received a reply.
