Nach der erfolgreichen ersten Ausgabe führt der Schweizerische Nationalfonds (SNF) 2018 den Wettbewerb für Bilder und Videos aus der Wissenschaft erneut durch.

Tierversuche, darf man das?

Im Themenportal geben Forschende der Gesellschaft für Versuchstierkunde Antworten aus ihrer Sicht auf häufig gestellte Fragen.

Für den human- und veterinärmedizinischen Fortschritt und für die Gewinnung von neuen wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnissen werden Tiere eingesetzt. Ist das gerechtfertigt? Wann sind Tierversuche bedenklich? Die gesellschaftliche Diskussion, wie man Schaden und Nutzen von Tierversuchen gegeneinander abwägen kann, ist in vollem Gang. Bei dieser Frage gibt es keine eindeutige Antwort. Sie zu finden ist eine fortwährende Aufgabe des gesellschaftlichen Diskurses, in dem die Naturwissenschaft nur eine Stimme unter vielen ist.
