Do you think that with all the scientific knowledge we now have, there is still a need to experiment on animals? Does information gained from animal research actually help us treat patients? Do scientists have the freedom to perform any experiment they think is interesting on an animal? This interactive masterclass will give students the opportunity to think about and discuss the issues involved in animal research. They will consider the ethics and law governing this area and will look at the medical and scientific developments, which have stemmed from work with animals.
