Baden-Württemberg: New Animal Protection Commissioner presents idea of a center for the study of transferability of animal experiments

Dr. Julia Stubenbord is the new representative of the federal agency for animal protection in Baden-Württemberg. In an interview with"tierversuche verstehen", she reports that there are thoughts for an establishment of a Center for Collaborative Approach to Meta-Analysis and Review of Animal Data from Experimental Studies (CAMARADES) in analogy to the German Cochrane Center at one of the Baden-Würtemberg's universities. Such kind of Center already exists in the UK. The aim of the Center is to investigate the transferability of animal experiments to humans, which would be a contribution towards the validity of animal experiments and the implementation of 3R.
