[In Spanish] Although the use of animals is necessary for the study of certain pathological processes, the development of techniques that are alternatives to animal experimentation will make it possible to reduce the use of experimental animals and replace them with these techniques. That was made clear at the symposium organised this week by the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO) with the support of the Banco Sabadell Foundation.
This meeting took place at the CNIO and was attended by more than 300 people who registered online. The aim of these meetings, which just celebrated their third edition, is to bring philosophy closer to the practice of science and to promote philosophical thinking in areas such as cancer, ageing, biodiversity and public health. This initiative is also a manifestation of the CNIO supporting the importance of philosophy in education and scientific thought.
