A recent audit is making the rounds among critics of Emory University’s animal research

From Atlanta Journal-Constitution, September 5, 2021

The National Science Foundation’s May audit questioned $89,884 of that it described as unallowable and unsupported expenses claimed on seven awards to the university. The audit reviewed about $12 million Emory claimed from the foundation on three dozen awards, starting in July 2019. Emory officials said in a statement to the AJC they have been working closely with the NSF to resolve the items identified and are prepared to refund the foundation for the costs in question.

Animal rights activists last week pointed to the audit as another reason Emory’s research program “is in shambles.”

“Emory misappropriates funds and fatally abuses animals,” said Michael Budkie, co-founder and executive director of Stop Animal Exploitation NOW! “Emory has misused federal research funding, and allowed animals to go without food and water. This research program is in shambles.”


Emory said in response it regularly reviews its research standards and practices “to ensure we provide the highest quality care for the animals involved in our research programs.”
