"To ensure the safety of human beings when they use newly developed medications, it is not currently possible to replace all animal testing," says Professor Monika Schäfer-Korting, executive vice president of Freie Universität Berlin and spokesperson for the new research platform. "However, the scientists in Berlin and Brandenburg are working to replace more animal testing and to make indispensable testing gentler, and where possible, to achieve equally good research results using fewer animals." The graduate program is a new opportunity for giving doctoral students working in these areas systematic and comprehensive training.
