This award-winning course introduces under-graduate and graduate students into the ethical and legal challenges of animal tests. Participants will learn about the requirements to develop alternative apporaches to animal testing as well as about internationally accepted in vivo and in vitro test systems. The course is part of the Berlin-Brandenburg research platform BB3R with integrated graduate education and will take place in the winter term 2018.
During the winter term 2018, eight classes will be organized. Each Thursday (2.30 p.m. - 4.p.m.), two (inter)-national experts will give insights into the latest developments on their field of expertise and discuss upcoming issues with the participants.
