We take the debate surrounding animal welfare and animal testing very seriously. No one at the MDC treats the topic lightly. We are aware of the ethical debates surrounding the topic and engage in a public dialogues on the topic.
We want to understand what happens in the body during disease and illness. To achieve this, we also have to perform research on living organisms.
We use animal-free methods whenever possible. But for the time being, it is not possible to dispense with animal experiments.
