I am shocked and saddened to see these revelations. And ashamed that it could have taken place in the University of my own training, in which I have had so much pride.
I can only fully support the work of BUAV and the RSPCA in conducting a full inquiry.
And I hope the result will be that this appalling cruelty will never be allowed to happen again.
Research on animals is an outdated concept – unethical, and unsupportable now that it is known that it yields false results.
There is now, in every case, a better alternative. Experimentation on animals must now come to an end, and I urge Imperial College to use this opportunity to put all cruelty in the past, by eliminating animal experimentation, and thereby set an example to the world.
