Technik vs. Tierversuch – Können künstliche Systeme Tierversuche abschaffen? (DE)

Present Futures Forum, Technische Universität Berlin | Gerrit Rößler, Jens Kurreck, Christa Thöne-Reineke, Birgit Beck

Kann Technologie Tierversuche ersetzen und wird Berlin die Hauptstadt für Ersatzmethoden?

Ob mit künstlicher Intelligenz, Computer Simulationen, Organmodellen aus dem 3D-Drucker oder auf einem biologischen Mikrochip, Forschende versuchen zunehmend Wege zu finden, um Versuche an lebenden Tieren zu vermeiden. Aber können diese neuen Methoden wirklich leisten, was bisher mit Mäusen, Ratten und anderen Tieren erforscht werden konnte? Ich welchem Verhältnis steht die Sicherheit und Verträglichkeit neuer Behandlungsmethoden für Menschen zum Wohl von Tieren? Für Berlin ist die Frage des ethischen Umgangs mit Versuchstieren besonders wichtig. Über 200.000 Mal im Jahr werden hier Versuche an Tieren gemacht. Ein Rekord für Deutschland. Alternativen werden jedoch bereits an diversen Forschungseinrichtungen, die sich sowohl mit der medizinischen Grundlagenforschung als auch mit der Anwendung bei Patienten beschäftigen, ausprobiert. Der Berliner Senat hat es sich daher vor einigen Jahren zum Ziel gesetzt den Forschungsstandort zur Hauptstadt der Ersatzmethoden für Tierversuche zu machen.

Die Tiermedizinerin Prof. Dr. Christa Thöne-Reinke (Freie Universität), die Ethikerin Prof. Dr. Birgit Beck (TU Berlin) und der Biochemiker Prof. Dr. Jens Kurreck (TU Berlin) diskutieren bei dieser interaktiven Podiumsdiskussion über neue methodische Fortschritte, Herausforderungen und Wege in die Zukunft. Die Veranstaltung wird von Dr. Gerrit Rößler moderiert und ist als virtueller Fishbowl konzipiert, sodass vorangemeldete Teilnehmende sich aktiv in die Diskussion einbringen können.
