FOI Animal Experiments

The request was successful.

Dear University of Abertay Dundee,

Dear Sirs,

I write to request to know does your university carry out animal experiments on living animals?

I request to know how many animals were used in experiments inside the Abertay University between the 1st of January 2017 and 31st December 2017

How many animals were held for use in experiments inside Abertay University between 1st of January 2017 and the 31st of December 2017 (if this differs from the above).

How many living animals are currently held on Abertay University premises for research purposes?

I request to know what species of animals were used for these experiments?

I request to know the Home Office licence classification for these experiments in terms of pain, lasting harm, etc. if classified?

I request to know if the animals used were for medical or non medical research?


Yours faithfully,

Gareth Norman
