Stop Animal Experiments at The University of Plymouth

Plymouth University have declared that they have resumed experimentation on live animals, the tests that are being carried out involve invasive and painful experiments and include GM manipulation and breeding of animals. Details released so far state that mice are being used in painful experiments where their sciatic nerve tissue is damaged. Other species of animals are also being used but the information has not been released yet regarding the full details of the experiments. We the undersigned object to the use of live animals for experimentation and urge the university of Plymouth to switch to more modern, reliable and ethical alternatives which do not involve the use of animals.
