Animal Models for basic & clinical research – PROS and CONS and (legal) risks

14 December 2022 @ 17:00 18:00

The next talk within the Lecture Series – Pitfalls and Solutions: ‘Good Experimental Design’ will be held on 14 December at 5pm.

Topic: Animal Models for basic & clinical research – PROS and CONS and (legal) risks

Speaker:         Prof. Sebastian Arnold, Institute of Experimental and Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology

Time:              Wednesday, 14 December 2022 at 5 pm

Venue:            Seminar room ground floor, Zentrum Translationale Zellforschung (ZTZ), Breisacher Str. 115

Abstract:         Animal models serve as fundamental tools in basic and clinical biomedical research. In this lecture we will discuss different model systems, including a historical perspective, and evaluate the benefits of different model systems for certain research purposes and questions. It will be highlighted how important the correct choice of different model systems is, and how inappropriate choice of model system sets limitations within studies and also for the transfer of experimental findings.

Especially in recent years, the legislation towards usage of animals for experiments has changed not only our thinking, but lead to direct consequences on daily work with animal model systems. We will touch the current regulations and issues that result from still not entirely resolved legal questions.

Finally, especially in recent years considerable efforts were made to establish non-animal model systems for biomedical research. We will discuss examples of organoid and embryoid model system, their limitations, but also the immense advantages that they deliver.
