Research, animal experiments and the 3Rs
Here at the MDC, we are committed to engaging in social dialogue on animal experiments in health research and animal welfare, to asking and answering questions regarding ethical issues, and to communicating transparently about our research.
We analyze what happens inside the body in health and disease, and bring this knowledge into the clinic. To achieve this, we must also conduct research on living organisms.
We use non-animal research methods wherever possible. If experiments are unavoidable, we limit the animal suffering to a minimum.
