Scientific ethics and integrity
Independence, honesty, conscientiousness, transparency and fairness are the basic principles that guide responsible conduct in science.
We stand for responsible action in human, animal and environmental health, so we place great importance on complying with the standards of good scientific practice. We also emphasize the respectful and lawful treatment of animals in all our research activities.
