INFORMATION

Before accepting a position at UW, Stern worked at the University of Michigan (U-M), where she chaired the animal experimentation oversight committee from 2006 to 2008. On Stern's watch, animals in the university's laboratories died of starvation and dehydration. When a fire broke out in a lab, trapped animals died of smoke inhalation or drowned as their cages filled with water from the sprinkler system, and others were so severely injured that they had to be euthanized.

During a six-month period with Stern at the helm of the oversight committee, there were more than 70 violations of federal animal protection regulations and guidelines in the laboratories at U-M—forcing the university to return $1.4 million in grant money to the National Institutes of Health because of these violations.

UW is already under fire for violations in its laboratories. Acting on evidence provided by PETA in 2007, federal investigators found that UW experimenters performed dozens of surgeries on monkeys without approval from the university's Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee.

Given UW's own record, Susan Stern's proven record of disregard for animal welfare guidelines is the last thing that UW and animals need.

Please contact University of Washington President Mark Emmert and urge him to prohibit Susan Stern from conducting experiments on animals in UW's laboratories.


Thank you for everything you do for animals!
