Research with animals complements non-animal methods

2 weeks ago

Zsolt Sebestyén is an associate professor of Translational Immunology at the UMC Utrecht. He currently works on the development of living medicines to fight against cancers with cell-based immunotherapies. In this interview, he explains to us the importance of animal models and the place of the transition towards animal-free innovations in his research field.
