Outstanding research on improving animal welfare in science
Date:3/13/2014

This news release is available in German.

The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) will award the Ursula M. Hndel Animal Welfare Prize, which recognises scientists who have improved the welfare of animals used in research, for the fifth time this year. The prize of 100,000 euros will be awarded to Professor Thomas Korff, who researches diseases of the vascular system at the Institute for Physiology and Pathophysiology at the University of Heidelberg, for his exemplary application of the principles of the 3Rs (replacement, refinement and reduction). Professor Korff has developed various ways to minimise the distress experienced by animals used in experiments and reduce the number of animals required. He has also found alternative methods to animal testing.

DFG President Professor Peter Strohschneider will present the Ursula M. Hndel Animal Welfare Prize to Thomas Korff on 20 March 2014 in Berlin. "The question for the DFG is to consider how science, which will not be able to do without animal testing entirely, can contribute to reducing the number of such experiments and to improve testing conditions to minimise animal distress," said Professor Strohschneider on the announcement of the prizewinner. A workshop on the subject of "Animal Models in Research Opportunities and Limitations" will take place before the award ceremony.

A jury chose the new recipient of the animal welfare prize from among nine applications. It was especially impressed by the winner's consistent application of knowledge gained from basic research in implementing the 3Rs in biomedical research. It also highlighted the relevance of Korff's new and enhanced methods to a broad range of research, from cardiovascular physiology to research into tumours. Korff's findi
