primate testing


Jerrold Meyer, like Melinda Novak, works at UMass Amherst and experiments on Rhesus Monkeys. Please take the time to send him an email asking him to stop these tests. We wrote up a sample email below that you can use, or write your own polite email.

Feel free to repost this call for emails

Jerrold Meyer’s  email is: jmeyer@psych.umass.edu

Melinda A. Novak

One of the scientists at UMass Amherst who is experimenting on primates (mostly Rhesus Monkeys right now) is Melinda Novak.

If we can get her to stop experimenting it will effect a lot more of the animal testing world.

Jerrold S. Meyer

Another scientist at UMass AMherst who is experimenting on primates (as well as other species) is Jerrold S. Meyer. He has also collaborated with Novak on some papers. His experiments are particularly atrocious because they involve giving Rhesus Monkeys MDMA or Ecstasy (the illegal drug) to see how it damages them. These experiments are clearly unnecessary and cruel.
