U. of Colorado-Boulder Reconsiders Animal Testing

The University of Colorado at Boulder is set to review its current policy on the use of live animals for research and class experiments.

Following a complaint filed by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, the University of Colorado at Boulder’s Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee will review undergraduate courses that claim live animals are necessary for their research, writes The Daily Camera. The committee is comprised of CU faculty members, a veterinarian, and health service representatives and will consider whether computer simulations or other methods could be used in place of the animals. According to the newspaper, curriculum changes could be implemented as soon as next spring. “CU-Boulder desperately needs to catch up to the universities around the world … that have abandoned cruel classroom animal laboratories in favor of more effective and humane 21st century educational tools,” says PETA’s senior vice president of laboratory investigations Kathy Guillermo.
