Letter from Frank and Mary Hoffman to NIH about Primate Abuse at Southwest Foundation - 31 Mar 2008

31 March 2008

Dr. Elias A. Zerhouni, Director
National Institutes of Health (NIH)
9000 Rockville Pike
Bethesda, MD 20892
Ez26y@nih.gov

Dear Dr. Zerhouni:

We urge you to please take immediate action against the Southwest Foundation for Biomedical Research for their egregious violations of the Animal Welfare Act.

Such action would include the following:

1. Full repayment by SWFBR of the grant money spent during noncompliance.

2. Prohibiting the offender from ever receiving another NIH grant.

3. Revoking SWFBRs Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare (OLAW) accreditation.

4. Investigating SWFBR for further noncompliance with the Animal Welfare Act during the entire funding period of the grant(s) in question.

We look forward to your reply. You can contact me at the address in this letter.

Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

Frank L. Hoffman
Mary T. Hoffman
