A medical doctor and anti-vivisection activist will speak at Brock on Sept. 17.

Ray Greek, a critic of animal research who used to experiment on animals, will speak about animal research at Pond Inlet from 7 to 9 p.m. Greek is president of the California-based not-for-profit Americans for Medical Advancement.

Greek has taught at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine and the Thomas Jefferson University School of Medicine in Philadelphia.

He and his wife Jean Swingle Greek have written three science books on the topic of attempting to extrapolate the results of animal experiments to humans. Those books are Sacred Cows and Golden Geese, Specious Science and What Will We Do If We Don’t Experiment on Animals?

His most recent books include Animal Models in Light of Evolution, which is written for people with scientific backgrounds, and FAQs About the Use of Animals in Science, which is written for non-scientists.

The event is free and open to the public. It is sponsored by the Department of Sociology.
