Ethical discussions on animal experiments are an important aspect of biomedical research fields. Being new or advanced in animal research would also bring up a lot of ethical questions to the scientists themselves.

In this workshop, our experts will introduce you to the basics of ethics in the context of animal research. You will also work together on selected case studies to gain different perspectives of science, scientist and animal welfare.

The event is mainly aimed at PhD students as well as post-doc. Participation in this event is free of charge, but the number of places is limited. If the number of registrations exceeds the number of available places, the places will be decided by lot.
