ICAR3R (Interdisciplinary Centre for 3Rs in Animal Research, Giessen)
ICAR3R (Interdisciplinary Centre for 3Rs in Animal Research, Giessen) is part of an initiative supported by the state of Hessen, which led to the foundation of the Research Campus of Central Hessen in 2016, as an alliance between the Justus Liebig University in Giessen, the Philipps University in Marburg and the TH Mittelhessen University of Applied Sciences (THM). Part of the strategy is to strengthen animal welfare.
The centre for 3Rs research includes a 3R professorship for Refinement at the Department of Veterinary Medicine, and a 3R professorship for Replacement at the Department of Human Medicine, at Justus Liebig University. In close cooperation with the Philipps University of Marburg, the THM and the Goethe University in Frankfurt, the Centre aims to promote animal protection in biomedical research and drive forward concepts for the development of alternative methods and husbandry conditions.
The Centre organised a kick-off symposium in Giessen on 18-19 October 2018.
The Centre's Coordinator is Dr. med.vet. Jessica Hornung.
