Dr. Jan Moor-Jankowski was a Polish-born American primatologist and a fighter for Polish independence against Nazi Germany.

Career

Moor-Jankowski was Director of the Laboratory for Experimental Medicine and Surgery in Primates (LEMSIP), which he founded in 1965, the Director of the World Health Organization Collaborating Center for Hematology of Primate Apes, and the editor-in-chief of the Journal of Medical Primatology.

Whistleblowing

In 1995, he was summarily dismissed from his position by NYU, and barred from the LEMSIP lab he founded, because of his whistleblower reports to the federal government regarding cruelty to chimpanzees in the care of a colleague. Dr. Moor-Jankowski cooperated with authorities in stopping experiments conducted by Ron Wood, who had been addicting primates to crack cocaine and depriving them of water. The United States Department of Agriculture cleared NYU of illegal retribution against Moor-Jankowski, even though its investigative arm reported NYU had clearly retaliated against him in violation of federal law.
