MPI-CBG researchers and staff are aware of the great responsibility that comes with animal experimentation in basic biological research. We provide the highest level of animal welfare and care for our laboratory animals. All laboratory animals under our care should be treated with respect and dignity throughout their lives. We are convinced that good science can only be achieved with the highest level of animal welfare.
