Initiative of the Competence Platform “Alternative methods to animal testing” starting a lecture series at the end of March
Fraunhofer heading for future predictive models
Research projects in the life sciences are based on increasingly multifaceted and interdisciplinary methods and often on a close combination of animal experiments with non-animal methods. The principle of the 3Rs that is valid for all researchers – to replace, reduce and consistently refine animal experiments – also governs research at Fraunhofer. Within the Fraunhofer Cluster of Excellence Immune-Mediated Diseases CIMD, an initiative of the Competence Platform ”Alternative methods to animal testing”, managed by Fraunhofer ITEM, has now been established. Already at the end of March, the initiative will be starting the lecture series ”Future predictive models – alternative methods to animal testing”.
