On August 25, 2022, Prof. Spranger gave a lecture on “The Enigma of Ethics Committees” for students of biochemistry and for employees of NIFE. He brought in many illustrative examples from his own experience. Afterwards, this topic which has become increasingly complex in recent years and therefore very burdensome for scientists, was discussed with great enthusiasm (“Top 10 of the “all-time classics”). The lecture was held as part of the event series “Development of Cell Therapeutics: Experimental Applications and Clinical Use of Adult Stem Cells” organized by Prof. Dr. Andrea Hoffmann.
