CS: Neurological Research Laboratories: Monkey Experiments Bremen , University of Bremen; September 2003
The dispute over animal experiments between the Bremen Senate and the university is escalating. Because they are “ethically not justified”, the Bremen Senate intends to definitively ban brain researcher Andreas Kreiter from his controversial monkey experiments at Bremen University; the university, on the other hand, insists on the freedom of research and wants to take the matter to the Federal Constitutional Court. The fate of the scientist and his 24 macaque monkeys will thus become a precedent. It will determine the future of animal rights activists and the rights of researchers in Germany (DIE ZEIT, 20.11.2008).
