University of Stuttgart and Robert Bosch Hospital develop a platform for tumor tissue as a substitute for animal testing

In order to avoid, reduce and improve animal testing, the state of Baden-Württemberg founded a statewide network of universities on 8 February with the aim of improving animal welfare in research and teaching, and has made 3.8 million euros available for the purpose.
