Give Your Input on Animal Research Ethics Forum
This is the third year that the UW-Madison has hosted the Forum on Animal Research Ethics (FARE). They have brought several speakers, including researchers currently using animals and other experts. Each presentation has been followed by a question/answer period, but little involved discussion.
The main purpose of this forum was to discuss the ethics of nonhuman primate experiments at the UW Madison. Another purpose was to describe how monkeys are treated at the UW Madison.
Has this happened? No it has not.
The FARE Committee is holding an open discussion forum where they encourage all to participate. What topics should FARE bring to the public? What issues mean the most to you? Members of the committee will be there to answer any questions and take any suggestions you might have.
Please attend this discussion and urge the members of the committee to hold discussions which will bring to light what actually goes on behind closed doors at the primate center and to discuss the ethics of primate experimentation.
December 5, 7:00PM at Union South
Room TBD, 1308 W. Dayton St, Madison, WI 53715
