Saarland state parliament: resolution for a reduction of animal experiments Featured

In the future, scientists based in Saarland should rely less on animal experiments for the development of new drugs and therapies but instead, use new methods. This was decided by the state parliament on Wednesday, February 16, at the request of the grand coalition.

The goal must be to make animal experiments superfluous in the medium term through alternative methods. Furthermore, the state parliament decided that in the future there should exist a coordinating staff unit "Animal-free research" at the university as well as more lectures on "Animal experiments in medical research" at the university.
