At the Free University of Berlin two lectures will be given on the topic "Latest technologies in biomedical research - for what reason animal experiments are nessessary?".

Prof. Ellen Fritsche from the Leibniz Institute for Environmental Medicine in Düsseldorf will inform the auditory about modeling of the human brain development in the petri dish as a basis for in vitro toxicity tests. Prof. Gary Lewin from the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine will discuss the question whether a development of new painkillers is possible without animal experiments.
