Sheri Sangji's death 18 days after a preventable lab fire at UCLA highlights the lack of safety standards and enforcement in academic labs, which puts thousands of students, postdoctoral researchers, and staff at risk of injury or death. The Sangji family deserves justice and lab workers, a safe work place. Criminal liability and punishment will lead UCLA and other universities to establish more effective systems of safety. The defendants in this case should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
