“The moral dilemmas in medicine” by Dr Anika Nagelkerke
Monday 31 October, 20:00 - 22:00
Animal testing is a vital part of drug design in today’s medicine, but it raises many ethical questions and isn’t even representative of the human body. Dr. Anika Nagelkerke from Groningen Research Institute of Pharmacy at the University of Groningen will discuss the opportunities and challenges of incorporating new developments in testing outside animals into drug development and the many regulations associated with it. She has done a lot of research in cancer treatment and modelling the human body in the lab and she will share some insights on how to move forward.
