Animal experiments are controversial in society. Helene Richter is Professor of Behavioural Biology and Animal Protection - her research aims to improve the conditions in laboratory experiments for the benefit of animals. In the podcast, she explains what is actually meant by animal experimental research, which methods are used to determine animal welfare, which factors improve the reproducibility of animal experiments and how strict German legislation - compared to other European countries - is in this area.
